Deep natural grooves and fissures on the biting surfaces of newly emerging adult teeth can be a plaque trap and create an environment that encourages decay especially in patients with a sweet tooth.
Fissure sealants and sealant restorations can be used to prevent decay in these teeth by flowing a tooth coloured runny filling into the deep natural grooves and fissures. Sometimes decay needs to be removed from these before the fissures are sealed, this is called a Sealant Restoration.
