The pediatric dentists of Happy Tooth Clinic place sealants on the surface of primary and permanent molars in order to protect them from getting cavities.
The sealant is a flowable composite that contains fluoride. It is placed on the surface of first permanent molars when they erupt at the age of 6. It closes all the pits and fissures in that surface so food and oral microbes cannot be trapped in them and create cavities. This will last for 3-4 years until the danger of cavities is minimized.
There is no tooth invasion and the risk of getting cavities is minimized by 80%, according to dental researches!
