In brief: Yes

Sealants don't last forever, they get worn down by grinding teeth either by eating or teeth grinding.
Sealants are good but sometimes need to be replaced.

In brief: Yes

Sealants only cover the chewing surfaces of teeth, which is where most people get cavities.
We can also get cavities in between and sides of our teeth. Sealants don't protect these areas.

In brief: See your dentist

Sealants only decrease the chance of developing cavities.
They can't prevent them 100% of the time.
