Preventative Resins And Sealants
As teeth develop, deep grooves called pits and fissures naturally occur. These areas can become stained and harbour bateria. As a result these areas account for more than 50% of cavities among children.
At K.L.O. Dental we clean the decalcified area of the teeth with a small fissurotomy bur. Dental sealant or preventative resin is then applied to the teeth and flows into the pits and fissures. It is a plastic tooth coloured material that creates an impenetrable barrier to bacteria and decay, thus preventing cavities.
