Fissure Sealants

Deep pits and grooves called fissures, on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, are difficult to clean effectively. The teeth are vulnerable when exposed to bacteria and food, which can lead to tooth decay.

What are fissue sealants?
Fissure sealant resin can be applied to seal the pits and fissures to protect the teeth from decay, usually the permanent molars and premolars are the ones most at risk.

How are sealants applied?
Sealants are applied easily and painlessly, no drilling is required. The plastic resin is painted onto the teeth. It forms a thin plastic, protective coating over the teeth to prevent decay.

How effective are sealants and how long can they last?
Sealants are effective in preventing decay and can last years, if regularly maintained every six months by your dentist, to make sure they are intact. They can also be easily repaired or replaced if needed.

When should sealants be placed on the teeth?
Sealants are most effective when applied soon after the eruption of the teeth. Early application seals pits and fissures to prevent decay.
