Pit and fissure sealants

  • 9 out of 10 cavities in children occur on biting surface of the tooth because fluoride is not very effective in these area as on smooth surface.

Grooves are often such deep that bristles cannot reach there and clean food and bacteria

Pit and fissure sealent is a bonded plastic material that “plugs up” the grooves and thus prevents decay. The procedure is simple and no anaesthesia is required.
