Fissure Sealants

What is a Fissure Sealant?

Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on to the grooves of the back teeth. The sealant forms a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.

This is a preventative measure that can remove the risk of needing a Filling in the future if the teeth are well looked after with good Oral Hygiene practices in the future.
