Sealants are used over the anatomic grooves in the back teeth, preventing bacteria from getting in. Dental sealants block out a very weak point in people’s dental hygiene. The anatomical grooves are a weak spot in the tooth because they get tinier as they progress into the tooth, but not so tiny that bacteria can’t hide in there. By sealing over the grooves, bacteria cannot access the tooth and cavities are prevented in that area.
