Sealants are coatings that help protect the deep grooves from becoming cavities. 
Healthy gums are pink and do not bleed when 
brushed or flossed.   As plaque bacteria is allowed to grow under the gums, your bodys immune system kicks in, bleeding is your body attempting to fight off the bacteria.  Bleeding gums is a sign of infection called 
Gingivitis.  Removing the bacteria every day will allow your body to heal and your gums will be pink and healthy.  
Teddy Grahams packed in deep grooves.  Sealants help food slide off these surfaces.  Sugarless chewing gum helps remove this debris and encourage saliva flow.
