I had a cavity filled last month. I am now booked for a clean and fissure sealant next week. At the moment i can feel another hole on the other side of my mouth. It is discoloured and my tounge can fit into it. Will the sealant fix this or will i need to get another cavity?

  • Sealant is the preventive measure which is used to seal the fissures and the pits which are not decayed but are prone to decay. If there is a hole or decay which can come under caries then the sealant can not be used in that as the sealant does not have that much strength.In such cases where hole is there and  you can feel it then the cavity has to be made and be filld with the restorative material.  For more info on pit and fissure sealants you can visit the following link.....www.identalhub.com/article_pit-and-fissure-sealant-251.aspx
