Understanding Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a thin, protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. These back teeth often have deep grooves and fissures where food particles and bacteria can easily accumulate. Due to the difficulty of cleaning these areas thoroughly, children are particularly susceptible to cavities in these regions. Fissure sealants act as a barrier, preventing the infiltration of bacteria and food debris into these vulnerable areas.
