We open a new melon of knowledge in pediatric dentistry: the sealing of cracks in children’s teeth. Here’s everything you need to know:
- What is it?
- When is it done?
- What teeth is it made of?
- How long does it last?
- How is it done?
- Should it be complemented with any more treatment?
Take a few minutes to read this information, save the link to this post to consult it when it suits you and share it with whoever you think you may need it.
WHAT IS IT?
It is a preventive treatment that consists of covering the cracks in the tooth itself with fluid resin.
The objective is to prevent food from accumulating and thus prevent caries.
WHEN IS IT DONE?
It is done in the first two years of having erupted the tooth, which is when it is most susceptible to caries, when there is a high risk of caries and when the pits and fissures are very marked.
WHAT TEETH IS IT MADE OF?
Fissure sealing is done when the first molars erupt, which come out at the age of 6 and must last a lifetime.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
With good care and good dental hygiene, they should last forever.
HOW IS IT DONE?
SHOULD IT BE SUPPLEMENTED WITH SOMETHING ELSE?
In the reviews we monitor them and if they have broken they are repaired in the same review, since if we leave them broken they can retain plaque.
We hope you found it useful!
