Dental Sealant / Fissure Sealant

What is dental sealant/ fissure sealant?

Our teeth, especially the molars, have many pits and crevices which are prone to food and bacteria build up and at risk of tooth decay.  Even with brushing and flossing, it is difficult and sometimes impossible to clean the tiny grooves and pits on the teeth.

Dental sealants protect the teeth by filling in the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth and shut out food particles that can get caught in them.  Brushing these surfaces clean will become easier!

Who needs dental sealant / fissure sealant?

The six year old molars and the twelve-year old molars are most in need of sealants.  The baby molars, permanent premolars or any tooth with grooves or pits can benefit from having sealant protection too.

Application of dental sealant /fissure sealant is fast and comfortable.
