  • Easy data storage.
  • Easy & rapid data retrieval.
  • Less radiation exposure to patients (by 70-80%), thus multiple x-rays can be taken frequently.

Pit And Fissure Sealants

These are clear plastic substances that are used to protect the tooth surfaces that are more prone to decay particularly the posterior teeth. The posterior teeth have numerous pits and grooves on their chewing surfaces. These areas provide shelter for food debris and bacterial products. At times, it is difficult even for a single tooth brush bristle to enter these areas and clean them. Pit and Fissure sealants are placed in these grooves to seal them.

These are especially recommended for children for their primary and permanent molars. However, they can be used for any tooth with susceptible pits and grooves. Placing Pit and fissure sealants is a quick, simple and painless procedure. The tooth requiring the sealant is first cleaned. Slight preparation of the pits and grooves, if required, is done. They are then treated with a mild acid for few seconds. Once the surface gets etched ,the sealant is made to flow in these areas and cured with a special light. The tooth is ready to use.
