Dental decay usually begins in the grooves of the permanent teeth. Sometimes a toothbrush cannot reach these deep grooves and remove the food debris and germs.

A fissure sealant is a liquid coating which is painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They fill the grooves and makes the fissures smooth and which enables to clean and remove the food and brush your teeth effectively. Sealants have fluoride which helps to prevent further decay.

The first permanent back teeth come around 5-7 years of age, the second permanent teeth come around 12 years of age, these are the most common teeth which gets fissure sealants.

The dentist cleans the tooth, applies a gel to prepare the tooth, then sealant is applied which hardens within minutes.
