Fissure sealants are clear or white plastic-based materials in liquid form which are applied to the back teeth. It prevents caries by sticking to tooth enamel. Liquid form is completely adheres within these grooves on the tooth surfaces. Thus, is applied to the tooth surface without any etching process and do not generate raise.
Even if your children use floss or brushes their teeth every day, this cleaning agents can not reach the grooves and ridges on the teeth. Food residues and bacteria settle into these grooves, may lead to tooth decay. Fissure sealants are progressing to the deepest point of the fissure because they are in a fluid consistency. They make it impossible to stick for food debris and bacteria by blocking these regions.
Fissure sealants are damaged over time.However even years later, it has been proven by studies that they stay on teeth rate of 85-90. Teeth grinding and consuming of hard foods can cause fall out of the sealants earlier
