You don't want holes or decay in the top of your back teeth... think about having sealants applied to your back teeth!
Because the chewing surface of teeth can be quite difficult to keep clean and often teeth have very fine grooves(fissures) and pits which are too small for toothbrush bristles to reach, dentists have developed a technique of "sealing" these grooves.
Ask the dentist whether fissure sealants would be good for your teeth.
A fissure sealant is a tooth colored or white "plastic" film that can be applied to the top or chewing surface of back teeth. Generally sealants are only applied to adult or permanent teeth.
Usually we need to wait until a tooth is fully erupted before a sealant can be applied.
How are sealants applied?
Do you need injections?
Any side effects?
How long to they last?
Can I use this to stop getting holes in my teeth?
