Preventative Dentistry at Woodville & Seaton Dental Clinic
Fissure Sealants are similar to white tooth filling. It is a white material that is rich in fluoride. The sealant material fills the grooves and pits of back teeth, and protects them from decay. It’s a preventative measure.
A sealant provides a smooth protective barrier. It covers the grooves, pits and dips of your teeth. It will prevent the bacteria from collecting in the grooves and decay from starting.
Fissure sealants are a fast, safe and reliable way to protect your teeth from tooth decay.
Teeth with a fissure sealant are easier to clean. The sealant itself doesn’t require any further home care. Food particles don’t get caught on the tooth.
Fissures should be checked regularly to ensure the seal remains intact. Fissure sealants can wear out over time, so they need to be checked regularly.
Fissure sealants are very beneficial for children, and present a fast and economical means to preventative dental care.
