Fissure sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of your teeth. They are applied in a simple, preventative procedure in which a tooth coloured coating is painted on tooth surfaces.
As the name implies, dental sealants effectively “seal” the deep grooves of the teeth, acting as a barrier protecting the enamel from food debris, plaque and acid. Fissure sealant is a painless procedure that helps protect your smile for a lifetime.
Sealants are a plastic resin that bonds to the deep grooves of the teeth. Once the depressed areas are sealed, the grooves of your teeth become smoother and less likely to harbour plaque. In addition, sealants make brushing easier and more effective in fighting tooth decay.
Today, fissure sealants are not only applied to children’s teeth as a preventative measure against decay but to those of adults as well. Each person has particular needs and your dentist at Comfort Dental Centre Buderim will recommend fissure sealants on a case-to-case basis.
Additional benefits of sealants include:
Fissure sealants generally last from 3 to 5 years. With proper care and installation, a dental sealant can provide the protection you need from decay and cavities.
