Fissure sealants are protective plastic coatings intended for covering the chewing surface of the adult teeth in the back of your child’s mouth. It is a totally safe and painless procedure that protects the teeth from tooth decay. Usually the back teeth in a child’s mouth are most susceptible to tooth decay. The sealant protects these teeth from decaying by forming a hard coat that acts as a barrier, preventing the entry of food and bacteria into the tiny grooves and hollows of the teeth.
Fissure sealants are highly durable and can last up to years. Although the sealants can wear a little over the course of time, the skilled dentists at our Perfect Smile Clinic maintain their integrity by adding or replacing sealants during regular check-ups.
