Fissure Sealants

What are Fissure Sealants?

Fissure Sealants are a safe and painless way or protecting your children’s teeth from decay. A sealant is a protective plastic coating, which is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.

Benefits of Fissure Sealants?

The key benefits of fissure sealants are that they prevent cavities developing through the top of the tooth. They are also relatively inexpensive, in comparison to dental fillings and other restorations used to repair damaged teeth.
