Fissure sealants are used to protect children’s teeth so that they might never need fillings! This painless procedure can be started at a young age and be a very useful preventative of future decay.
The chewing surface of children’s back teeth contain tiny grooves called fissures, these are difficult to clean thoroughly and can fill with food and bacteria, eventually causing decay. Fissure sealant is a type of hard-wearing coating which will protect the molar for years to come. By the time the child reaches the age of 14 all fissures should be permanently sealed.
It is absolutely painless and doesn’t affect chewing or brushing.
