What Is a Tooth Fissure?

When you visit your dentist for a checkup or to get dental fillings, he may talk about the fissures in your teeth and how they relate to your oral health. Watch this video to learn about fissures and teeth.

In dentistry, the grooves that are located on the top or sides of a tooth are referred to as fissures. Tooth fissures are most prominent on the molars, which usually have a main fissure that runs through the center that is referred to as the longitude fissure. Because it can be harder for them to clean their teeth, people who have deep tooth fissures are more likely to suffer from cavities.

Seeing your dentist for sealants can help prevent decay from forming in your tooth fissures. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Charles Marks at our dentist office in New York, please call (212) 279-1232.
