Fissure Sealants

Though brushing and flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of teeth, but toothbrushes can’t reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to remove all food and plaque.

Sealants are a thin, plastic coating that are painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth- usually the back teeth (molars and premolars) – to prevent decay.

It quickly bonds into the depression and grooves of teeth forming protective shields over the enamel of each tooth, preventing any food from lodging there and thus preventing tooth decay! Typically, children are more prone from ages 6 to 14years, so are recommended to get the sealants on the permanent premolar and molars.

Dental sealants can protect their teeth from decay for  up to 10 years. They need to be checked at regular dental check-ups to make sure they are not chipped or worn away which can be repaired by adding more sealant material.
