Next time you’re at the dentist, ask him or her about dental sealants. They’re quick, painless, in-office treatments that involve painting the grooves of cavity-prone teeth with a protective, plastic liquid. The film seals off treated areas from decay-causing plaque.

Typically costing between $25 and $50 per tooth, dental sealants are covered by most insurance companies and are usually only applied to the back teeth, where deep fissures breed hard-to-reach plaque buildup.

Although dental sealants can last for years-three to five on average-it’s important to get them checked at regular dental visits to ensure food isn’t getting trapped underneath.
