Pit And Fissure Sealants
Painless way of protecting your children’s teeth from tooth decay by our pediatric dentists. It is a plastic coating which covers the chewing surfaces of the back adult teeth. The sealant for kids forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth.
Pits and grooves on the tooth’s biting surfaces are prone to decay, as food and plaque that get stuck in these areas are very difficult to remove even with thorough brushing.
Fissure sealants are a thin plastic coating applied to the biting surface of teeth. They have been proven to be highly effective in preventing cavities. The best time to seal the adult molar teeth is soon after they come through. Baby molar teeth can also be sealed for children who have a higher risk of decay.
