No matter how much we’d rather prevent the need for the dental treatment than have to deal with a dental problem there are always times when no matter how well you clean those back teeth the decay will set in, which is particularly true for children’s teeth, so a useful strategy is to seal these deep grooves to prevent decay. Detecting any early damage will let us to clean groove out and seal it up before there develops a cavity.
Once there is a cavity in a tooth we’ll have to drill the right through the enamel to remove the decay in the tooth and place a filling, which means the tooth always ends up weaker. For the rest of your life the tooth is never going to be the same and as strong as if it were intact and perfect. The beauty of a fissure sealant is that, it allows us to clean the groove out many times without going through the enamel.
