Sealant application is a non-invasive procedure consisting of filling the pits and fissures of a tooth. It creates a smooth, flat, impermeable barrier that stops bacterial plaque accumulating and prevents demineralisation of the protected surface. The clinical success of sealants has been described in many clinical studies. Sealants can be applied to prevent carious lesions appearing, or to treat and stop the carious process. This article sets out the indications for using this non-invasive procedure and provides some facts about protocol.
