The surface through which we chew the food may consist of grooves and fissures that may pave the way for cavities and decay. These fissures become difficult to clean and over time they become deeper though it can be narrower compared to a single bristle of your toothbrush. The plaque starts to accumulate in these areas and the acid present in the bacteria would affect the enamel and lead to cavities. Though fluoride treatments can help in keeping cavities at bay, your dentist may prescribe a sealant treatment for those teeth that are particularly vulnerable to cavities and decay. It is no surprise that a kid of about 6 to 10 years would have grooved as well as pitted areas in the teeth where the food particles may accumulate. But a dental sealant provides an additional protection so that there is no connection between the food particles and the chewing surface of the teeth. The tooth sealants are plastic coatings made from bio-compatible materials that are installed by the dentist on the chewing or occlusal surface of your teeth. Your dentist may prescribe that your child should get the tooth sealant as soon as the chewing surface of the teeth has completely evolved. Though the wisdom teeth come out much later, the other teeth generally come out by the age of 10-11 and this is the perfect time to get the teeth sealed, so that cavities and subsequent dental problems can be prevented.
