The typical anatomy of posterior teeth (molars and premolars) includes mountains (cusps) and valleys (fissures) especially on the biting surfaces. The fissures are frequently very deep and prone to retaining bacterial dental plaque which can result in dental caries (cavities). Dental sealants may be recommended for these zones on permanent back teeth. At CPDA, sealants are always applied utilizing dental restorative composites and performed only by the pediatric dentist. We believe that this approach results in superior long term retention and preventive success.
