Preventative dentistry is an effective way to protect your smile and reduce the likelihood of problems occurring in the future. A fissure sealant is essentially a plastic coating that is applied to the grooves and pits of your tooth. The sealant can then help to prevent the tooth from decaying. Fissure sealants are generally most appropriate for permanent back teeth (molars).
Decay is most common in the molars at the back of your mouth because these teeth have grooves and pits that are difficult to clean and manage. Sealants are a proven preventative tool that can prove to be a cost-effective solution for safeguarding your smile.
Our friendly dental team strongly believe preventative dentistry is the very best approach. Ideally, your own teeth will last you for life, but they can only do so if properly cared for. Here at Dental Haus, we have an extensive range of preventative dental care treatments that will help keep your teeth and gums in great shape. These include dietary advice, oral hygiene treatments, fissure sealants and periodontal care.
