Fissure Sealants

Protect Your Teeth from Decay with Fissure Sealants!

Fissure Sealants Albury

Grooves or pits on the surfaces of your teeth can trap food particles and encourage plaque build-up. Fissure sealants cover up these grooves, making them smoother, strengthening your teeth against decay and making them easier to clean.

Fissure sealant application is a safe and painless way of protecting your teeth from decaying. A fissure sealant is a protective coating made of resin or plastic, which is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth.

The fissure sealant forms a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth.

Factors for getting fissure sealants are unique to patients or teeth that are at high risk of dental caries.

This includes patients with:

  • History of dental caries
  • Deep retentive pits
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Early signs of dental caries
  • Poor plaque control
  • Enamel defects, such as enamel hypoplasia
  • Orthodontic appliances

Fissure Sealant Application Procedure in Albury

Before placing fissure sealants, your Albury dentist will clean your teeth to remove any plaque.

The surfaces of the grooves are cleaned with a special tooth cleaner, and the fissure sealant material is then painted into the grooves. The sealant is then hardened with a special UV light.

Fissure sealant appointments are quick and easy to perform, suitable for children and adults of all ages.
