Fissure sealants are a great preventive measure we can take to avoid cavities in the deep grooves of the back molars. These grooves are the most common site for cavities to form, especially in children!
What is every child’s favourite food? Seems to be “fruit snacks!” Fruit snacks (including dried fruits) offer a glimpse of fruit flavour but are packed with sugar. When children eat these, they will get stuck in the grooves of the back teeth for hours, leading to cavities. You can talk to Dr. Charmaine about the benefits of fissure sealants and ask her if your child is eligible for them!
