The pits and grooves on the back teeth may be too narrow for a toothbrush bristle to reach the base. This allows plaque and bacteria to accumulate, which increases the risk of tooth decay. Dental sealants fill those pits and grooves, thus decreasing the risk of tooth decay by preventing the accumulation of plaque and bacteria.
