Preventive Dentistry >> Selants
What are sealants?
Sealants are basically highly flowable composites with fluoride releasing property. They  are made to flow in to the naturally occurring pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where most cavities in children teeth are found.

Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is difficult - sometimes impossible -to clean the tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth. Food and bacteria build up in these crevices, placing your child in danger of tooth decay. Sealants "seal out" those pits and fissures, thus reducing the risk of decay.
How long do sealants last?
Sealants can last for many years if properly cared for. So, your child will be protected throughout the most cavity-prone years. If your child has good oral hygiene and avoid biting hard objects, sealants will last longer. During routine dental visits we can recommend reapplication or repair if necessary.
What is the treatment like?
The application of a sealant is quick and comfortable. It takes only one visit. The tooth is first cleaned. It is then conditioned and dried. The sealant is then flowed into the grooves of the tooth and allowed to harden or hardened with a special light. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.
Which teeth should be sealed?
The natural flow of saliva usually keeps the smooth surfaces of teeth clean but does not wash out the grooves and fissures. Any tooth, however, with grooves or pits may benefit from the protection of sealants. most commanly they ara permanent 1st & 2nd molars.
