The occlusal surfaces of the molars and premolars have grooves in the central area, sometimes even very deep. Here it is easy for bacteria to proliferate, triggering carious processes, frequent in these locations especially at a young age, when the correct techniques for accurate oral hygiene have not yet been assimilated.
Through theapplication of a special white resin, very similar to the composite materials used for fillings, on the occlusal face of the teeth, it is filled and isolate the furrows, preventing oral bacteria from settling and stagnating inside them and facilitating home teeth cleaning.
The treatment is usually recommended from 6 years of age, when the dental exchange begins and the first permanent molars begin to appear and subsequently around the age of 12, when the second molars erupt in the arch.
