Fissure sealing, a process in children’s dentistry, where the biting surface of the adult molar teeth is covered with a coating in order to prevent cavities. Since the child will be prone to eating sweet food substances, the chances of cavities are greater when compared to an average adult.
Parramatta Green Dental provides Fissure sealing services for children. The sealants used are similar to the color of the teeth, and hence not visible. Once applied, the sealant will be fixed permanently and will stay for a period of 2 years.
The Importance of Fissure Sealants
When eating, food particles might easily get settled in the pits and dents on the molar teeth. Though your child might brush twice a day, those particles will get lodged in these areas, which might result in cavities and infections. It can also result in the breeding of bacteria and plaque, which might result in severe infections.
When the fissure sealant is applied, it will block all the dents in the tooth, thereby limiting the blockage of food particles. This reduces the chance of cavities and infections in your child’s teeth.
