Fissure Sealant is to protect our natural teeth from decay. Our natural teeth have grooves and fissures on biting surfaces. Decay can starts in these deep grooves.
Tooth brush bristles do not reach the deepest part of pits and fissures.This can lead to tooth decay.
Children and adolescent are most vulnerable. A pit and fissure is more likely to decay compared to other tooth surfaces. Fissure sealant fills deeper fissure and grooves making them less vulnerable to decay and creating physical barrier for food and bacteria to reach that surface protecting teeth. Prevention is better than cure so protecting teeth with sealant prevents tooth decay in future.
Fissure sealant procedure is non invasive, easy, comfortable and pain free.
Regular 6 month checkups ensure ongoing maintenance and vigilance on loss of Fissure sealant and decay. A lost sealant can be easily replaced.
