Fissure Sealants

Back teeth are criss-crossed with deep pits and fissures, which for children can be hard to clean effectively. This makes children’s teeth especially vulnerable to tooth decay as plaque builds up and becomes impossible to remove.

To avoid this we can place Fissure Seals on newly erupted back teeth.
This is a completely pain-free procedure that takes around five minutes per tooth; the sealant is a pink or tooth-coloured material that flows into the grooves of the back teeth, setting hard.
