      Pit and Fissure Sealants

      Prevention is better than cure.

      Like most things in life, prevention is better than cure. At Harmony, we understand the importance of caring for your child's oral health from the very beginning and ensuring they have all the protection they need to keep their smiles healthy. One proven way to help prevent cavities in the hard-to-reach areas of your child's teeth is by using pit and fissure sealants.

      Pit and fissure sealants are thin, protective coatings painted onto the chewing surfaces of your child's molars and premolars. These teeth have deep grooves and pits that are challenging to clean with brushing alone, making them prime targets for tooth decay. Sealants act as a barrier, preventing food particles and bacteria from accumulating in these grooves and causing cavities.

      Benefits of Getting Pit and Fissure Sealants

      at Harmony Medical Center

      Sealants can significantly reduce the risk of cavities in children by up to 80%. This can save your child from extensive dental procedures and future dental expenses.
      Applying sealants is a quick and painless procedure. It typically involves cleaning the tooth, drying it, and applying a thin coat of sealant that hardens under a curing light.
      Applying sealants soon after as the first permanent molar erupts, provides the most effective protection.
      With proper care, sealants can last for several years, offering long-term cavity prevention for your child.

      Pit and Fissure Sealants FAQs

      According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), sealants can be applied as soon as the first permanent molar erupts, typically around age 6, and soon after other permanent teeth come in.

      Yes, pit and fissure sealants are a safe and effective way to prevent cavities. The materials used in sealants have been thoroughly tested and are considered safe for children.

      Sealants can last for several years with proper care, but they may need to be reapplied periodically. Your child’s dentist will check the condition of your child's sealants during their regular checkups.

      No, sealants are not a substitute for good oral hygiene habits. Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily are still essential for removing plaque and bacteria from your child's teeth.
