What is a pit and fissure sealant?
2 years ago
pit and fissure sealants are effective means of preventing caries. They act by the physical obstruction of pits and fissures with new bacteria. They prevent entry of fermentable carbohydrates into the pits and fissures so that any remaining bacteria cannot produce acid in cariogenic concentration thus protecting teeth against caries.
