These are an effective way of preventing decay on the surfaces of your molar teeth. It is a simple procedure where a tooth coloured acrylic coating is “painted” onto the surface of your tooth. This seals the deep grooves (fissures) in your teeth, forms a barrier and protects the tooth from plaque and dietary acids.
Both children and adults can benefit from the application of fissure sealants.
Sealants generally last for many years. The dentist can easily add to worn or chipped sealants at your dental “check-up” if needed.
