Preventative (Sealants)

Anatomy of teeth is developed through coalescing of various lobes. For example, bicuspids are generally formed from two lobes and molars from four lobes. When individual lobe coalesces to form teeth, they usually create deep fissures where food and bacteria can thrive and cause cavity or demineralization of tooth structure. This photo shows stains or possibly carious lesion on the fissures of the first molar.
