Fissure Sealants

Fissure SealantsThe biting surfaces of our back teeth have pits and fissures which can be ‘sticky’ and tend to hold food and bacteria.  In children especially these areas are very prone to tooth decay. The sealant is a plastic coating which is bonded to the tooth and this makes it easier to clean and helps prevent decay on these vulnerable back teeth. The procedure does not require any anaesthetic.
