Sealing fissures of children

Sealing fissures of children

Fissure sealing in children is a method of preventing caries and treating it at an early stage. Fissures are natural irregularities on the upper surface of the chewing teeth. It is thanks to them that the child grinds food. At the same time, food particles remain in the relief depressions on the teeth, which leads to the formation of plaque and is a favorable environment for bacteria. The sealing procedure creates a protective shield for bacteria where the tooth enamel is especially vulnerable – in the deep convolutions of molars and premolars, which are difficult to access for good hygiene.

Pediatric dentistry in Dnepropetrovsk Amel Dental Clinic uses the most advanced technologies for the treatment and prevention of oral diseases in children, however, the development of dental diseases can be prevented only with regular visits to the dentist. This is the only way to identify and eliminate problems in the rudiment itself, using sparing methods of treatment.

Tooth fissure sealing: what is it?

Modern dentistry has found an effective way to protect temporary and permanent teeth in children from carious infection. Fissure sealing is a quick and completely painless procedure that will save your baby from getting to know the drill for several years. Sealing is the treatment of the tooth with a special fluorine-containing material, which creates a reliable protective layer on the enamel surface. The material is applied to the teeth using a syringe pen. It takes about 10-20 minutes to process one tooth, while the child does not experience the slightest pain or discomfort. But the action of the sealant lasts at least one year.

Sealing of milk teeth is a therapeutic and prophylactic procedure. Thus, the components in the sealant enrich the teeth with fluoride ions throughout the year, thereby providing not only a protective, but also a therapeutic effect.

When should and when should not fissure sealing be performed in children?

Fissures are the weakest point in chewing teeth, which is why it is here that caries most often develops in children. Enamel on milk premolars / molars is characterized by a low level of mineralization. Exactly the same property of enamel in young permanent teeth, which become strong enough only two years after eruption. This is a good reason to take action as early as possible to help prevent fissure infection.

However, fissure sealing is not suitable for all children. Doctors suggest this method if:

  • 1
    treatment is difficult due to the age of the baby; the presence of a deep fissure, which cannot be cleaned with conventional means and hygiene items (mandatory absence of fissure caries);
  • 2
    incomplete mineralization of the chewing surface;
  • 3
    the minimum period after eruption.

Contraindications:

  • the relief of the teeth is such that it does not contribute to the accumulation of food;
  • molars have not erupted completely;
  • interdental caries.

The need for sealing fissures or the presence of contraindications to the procedure can only be determined by a doctor. Once your baby has 6 permanent molars, make an appointment with the pediatric dentist at Amel Dental Clinic. The examination will help to identify a predisposition to caries, to maintain and strengthen the health of children’s teeth.

Sealing children’s teeth: stages of the procedure

  • Cleansing. After brushing the teeth (using a paste with fluoride, sandblasting), the doctor conducts an antiseptic treatment of the tooth surface.
  • Acid pickling.
  • Washing and drying. At this stage, the tooth is protected from contact with saliva.
  • Fissure sealing. The doctor injects a sealant into each natural depression on the molar surface.
  • Polymerization. To quickly solidify the sealant, it is irradiated with a UV lamp.
  • Polishing. It is needed to achieve a smooth tooth surface.
  • Fluoride varnish treatment. The tooth is coated with a fluoride-containing product that provides additional protection against caries.

Sealing is a safe and painless procedure for young patients.
