Pit and groove sealing, also known as point gap split groove sealing (pit and fissure sealant) refers to an effective method for preventing caries by coating a layer of adhesive resin on the occlusive surface instead of removing the dental tissue, so as to protect the tooth enamel from the attack of bacteria and metabolites and enhance the anti-caries ability of the teeth for sealant。Dental cavity and groove sealing agent forms a protective barrier to prevent bacteria and food residues from entering the cavity and groove. At the same time, the original bacteria in the cavity and groove gradually die due to the loss of nutrition, thereby preventing the occurrence of cavity and groove caries and stopping the development of early caries。The method of sealing the pit is very simple, through cleaning the teeth, acid etching, washing and drying, coating sealant and curing several steps can be completed。After curing, the material is tightly bonded with the ditch wall, and has a certain anti-chewing pressure, which is not harmful to eating, and the material is non-toxic after curing, and is harmless to the human body。
