If there are deep fissures on a child’s tooth, dental plaque can easily accumulate where the toothbrush bristles cannot access and clean these areas thoroughly. Therefore, these teeth are prone to tooth decay.
Fissure sealant is a tooth-coloured or transparent material, which is well adhered to the enamel of the tooth. Fissure sealant seals off the fissures of a tooth to prevent tooth decay by blocking the plaque bacteria in the fissures from getting access to the dietary sugars.
