Tooth decay prevention is of utmost importance in saving healthy teeth.
Fissure sealing with dental sealants is effective for the prevention of the initial stages of tooth decay. Sealants are placed on all the hard-to-reach, deep tooth surfaces.
Fissure sealing is particularly important for children and the younger generation, young men and women, that is for the people whose enamel mineralization is not yet complete (the process of enamel maturation is pretty intense for two years after the tooth eruption).
Sealant dental material fills fissures easily due to its high fluidity, when applied to the chewing surface of the tooth, making them flat and smooth. As a result of fissure sealing teeth get protection from decay for many years.
