Tooth fluoride therapy is a short-term treatment (toothpaste with high fluorine concentration is applied) and it is recommended four times a year (with every new season).
By the term fissure sealant, the fissure is filled with a liquid fluorine composite to prevent plaque retention and caries formation.
Children in the sixth year of life get the first permanent tooth – sixths that play a major role in the occlusion of the upper and lower jaw. This is the period of the teeth replacement, when the hygiene is not at a very high level, so the sealantof fissures of permanent teeth plays a key role in preserving teeth.
REPAIR OF PRIMARY AND PERMANENT TEETH
The period of sprouting primary teeth is from the sixth month of life until the age of three. Not long after the second primary tooth sprouted, the child should be taken to the first visit to the dentist. Baby teeth should be treated as permanent ones – in order to prevent transmission of infection to the germ of permanent teeth, to preserve the space for a permanent tooth and to develop the culture of going to the dentist.
