When should I get pit and fissure sealants

Posted on 6/20/2022 by Dr. Brandon Cooley
Tooth decay is the destruction of the surface of the teeth by bacteria. This also affects the enamel. Pits and fissures are the way the posterior teeth are shaped. They are prone to the accumulation of bacteria and acids. The posterior teeth have more bottomless pits than the rest. These teeth cannot receive the same fluoride protection as other teeth. Pits and fissures sealants help with the inhabitation of the accumulation of microorganism's bacteria and food. Pit and Fissure Sealants A sealant is a small plastic coat that covers the tooth's biting surface. They help protect the groves, thus avoiding bacteria and microorganisms sticking. These bacteria and microorganisms lead to the dental cavity. Some teeth have deeper grooves than others. The dental team should be able to examine the teeth and recommend the best possible solution. The process of putting on pit and fissure sealants is quite simple. It is a straightforward process that takes little time for each tooth. The dental process requires cleaning the tooth with a solution. The teeth are then dried. Afterward, a liquid is applied to the teeth. This liquid acts as a sealant solution dried by a bright shining light. There are two main types of sealants. The resin-based and glass ionomer sealants are the preferred choice for the glass ionomer sealants. The process is generally painless, and the teeth feel the same as before with time. Sealants are normally long-lasting. They, however, need to be checked regularly. They usually wear out over time. Offering care Pit and fissure sealants are advised to be put in as soon as the permanent teeth are fully grown. The sealants are very important as they help keep the teeth from accumulating. Pit and fissure sealants are to help clean teeth with fluoride toothpaste. It is important to visit our dental professionals for more advice....
