Why Do I Need Fissure Sealants?
The deep pits and grooves in these back teeth are where many of the cavities in children's teeth develop. Plaque bacteria can flourish in these ideal conditions thanks to trapped food particles. If not addressed, cavities will occur. While sealants prevent cavities in the molar grooves, fluoride greatly reduces tooth decay on the smooth surfaces of the teeth. Fissure sealants, which are made of plastic resin and put to the tooth's surface, make it simpler to clean your teeth and help prevent cavities by filling up the deep pits and grooves.
