Sealing pits and fissures, is a technique used to protect permanent molars from cavities. This is a simple procedure that involves applying a protective sealant to the occlusal surfaces of the teeth.

Sealants are indicated in children from 6 years of age, when the  permanent molars have finished erupting. Permanent molars may have anatomical features that make them more vulnerable to cavities, such as deep grooves.

The purpose of sealants is to protect these areas from plaque and bacteria buildup  , which can cause cavities.

Sealants for Kids: Early Prevention

Sealants for children are an essential preventive measure. By protecting the natural grooves in the teeth from bacteria, the risk of cavities is significantly reduced, ensuring strong dental health from a young age.

Here are the general steps for sealing the grooves:


  • Installation of the dental dam: which is a silicone-based field that insulates the teeth, to stay dry.
  • Tooth preparation: Before starting the procedure, the dentist cleans and dries the tooth to remove any traces of plaque or saliva.
  • Application of the sealant: the dentist then applies the sealant on the surface of the tooth, making sure to cover all the pits and fissures.
  • Polymerization: the sealant is hardened by a curing lamp, which solidifies the material to make it resistant and durable.
  •  Finishing: Once the sealant is cured, the dentist checks that all areas are well covered.  The occlusion is then adjusted to avoid any discomfort during chewing.


Sealing pits and fissures is a relatively quick and painless procedure  that does not require anesthesia and can be performed in a single session at your dentist office. This technique is particularly useful for protecting permanent teeth from cavities and helps ensure long-term good oral health in children.
