The primary benefit of a dental sealant is that it offers protective coverage, which helps keep plaque and food particles away from getting accumulated in the tough parts of your permanent back teeth. Doing so prevents the occurrence of serious oral issues like cavities, root canals, and the need for crowns.

Children and teenagers are more likely to develop decay in the grooves and ridges of their molars and premolars; hence, they are ideal for dental sealants. However, adults who do not have decays or fillings in their permanent back teeth are eligible for this.
The dental sealants can protect teeth from decay for up to 10 years. However, they should be checked occasionally for chips and wear during your regular dental exams. Your dentist will be able to replace the sealants as necessary.
