what is the difference between a dental filling and a dental sealant?

Hello Sampeterson!

Dental sealants are applied over pits and fissures in the chewing surfaces of back teeth to prevent them from decaying. Dental fillings are used to fill in holes formed from a decayed tooth. I hope this helps.

Hello!

Dental fillings are used for cavities while dental sealants are used in the grooves of the chewing surface of a tooth.
