PROTECTING MOLAR SURFACES

July 31st, 2014

The chewing surfaces of the molar teeth are made more effective by an irregular pattern of grooves and protuberances (called pits, fissures, and cusps) which allow you to properly grind your food. However, these pits and fissures can often become a very susceptible place for the entrapment of food debris. Read More »

One key to good preventive dental practice is the trend towards Minimally Invasive Dentistry.  That is, the employment of the least invasive treatment options available to minimize tissue loss and maximize patient comfort.  The first basic treatment step in treatment of early tooth decay is the re-mineralization of enamel.

The chewing surfaces of the molar teeth are made more effective by an irregular pattern of grooves and protuberances (called pits, fissures, and cusps) which allow you to properly grind your food.  However, these pits and fissures can often become a very      susceptible place for the entrapment of food debris.  This food debris can lead to the production of bacterial plaque, which can then lead to the formation of a cavity on the biting surface of the molar.  Pit and fissure sealants are an effective means of protecting these surfaces and preventing decay.  In molars where the pits and fissures are deep and difficult to keep clean, the sealant will “block out” the deepest areas, making it more difficult for the bacterial plaque to stick to the tooth’s biting surface.
