Are Pits and Fissures Something to Worry About?

Posted on 2/10/2018 by Century Dental LLC
Pits and Fissures Century Dental OR 97123-6753Pits and fissures are common on the teeth and they are the grooves and bumps that you normally see on the fronts and backs of the teeth.

They are something that do not harm the teeth at all and are not bad for your health. However, when it comes to whether or not these are bad for your mouth and your health, there are some considerations to keep in mind.

Pits and Fissures Inside the Mouth

You need to make sure that the pits and fissures inside the mouth are properly cleaned. This is because these areas are easy to get decay in.

When the decay happens, you then want to make sure that these grooves in the teeth are cleaned out and ready to go because they can break down and cause the tooth a lot of pain in the end. You want to protect yourself when the time comes and this is the best way to go about doing so.

Pits and fissures are common and they are not anything to worry about until the tooth cracks or has decay in these areas. When this happens, you want to make sure that you are getting the most out of your smile and also ensuring that infection does not happen with time.

Having great oral hygiene is something anyone should have, but when it comes to those hidden crevices and grooves, it is increasingly important.

Contact our dental office here to find out more regarding the pits and fissures in your mouth and how we can help you clean them up so you can smile with confidence once again.

Speak with us today to find out other tips for keeping them as healthy as they can be. Our dental professionals can help when you need them to.
