There are ‘pits’ (small hollows) and ‘fissures’ (grooves) on the biting surface of the back teeth. It is where food and bacteria tend to remain after meals and they are very hard to clean. Over time, compounded food and bacteria on that area might lead to tooth decay.
Impact of sealants in preventing tooth decay:
A sealant is a clear protective plastic coating applied to the biting surface of the back teeth. It prevents food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves, thus prevent tooth decay.
Applying the sealant is quick and pain free. You just need to take your child to the clinic once, and no diet is required after the treatment.
Preventive sealant can be maintained for up to 10 years if your child does not usually chew hard food, and regularly has dental health checked. Doctors will examine and adjust according depending on your child’s condition.
