Fissure Sealants

Prevent Decay | Coating | Fissure Sealants in Melbourne

Most teeth have natural grooves and pits on their surfaces. A narrow, deep or complex fissure or pit and/or poor brushing can lead to food and plaque becoming trapped on these surfaces which can then lead to decay. Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that cover the pits and grooves of the teeth to form a barrier that helps prevent decay.  They are commonly placed on the molar teeth of children especially where there is difficulty with brushing.
