Pit and Fissure Sealants

The top surface of the tooth is generally flat and smooth. They are usually irregular with structures known as pits and fissures. These sorts of places are the most suitable sites for plaque build-up. Some these irregularities are so narrow and deep such that even single brushing may not suffice. Therefore, methods happen to be necessary in order to rectify this problem.

dental care

One of the most reliable and commonly used methods for treatment is the use of sealants. These sealants are not applied all of a sudden. Tooth preparation needs to be performed at first. This procedure comprises of cleansing the tooth first, followed by applying an etching solution to remove the plaques. The application of these chemicals also makes it easy for these sealants to stick to the tooth surface. The whole procedure does not consume much time and is also painless. Applying sealants also do not require drilling or removal of tooth structure.

Sealants can be of many shades. They can be slightly tined, white and are not normally observed.

Sealants perform many functions. Primarily, these materials acts as covers that protect the tooth surface from different kinds of infection and food particles. Also, use of sealants is also much better than waiting for the cavity to form and treat it.

Sealants are usually used in places where pressures due to chewing are experienced. Therefore, one can easily doubt about the durability of these materials. However, sealants usually last for years without major wear and tear. Permanent molars are usually benefitted from sealants.
