Comprehensive & New Patient Services Near You

We are delighted to offer Fissure Sealants as part of our commitment to providing comprehensive and preventive dental care. At Smile Dental Art Centre, we believe in staying at the forefront of dental technology and techniques to ensure the optimal oral health of our patients.

What are Fissure Sealants?

Fissure Sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, particularly the molars and premolars. These teeth have deep grooves and fissures that can be challenging to clean effectively with regular brushing. Fissure Sealants act as a barrier, preventing food particles and bacteria from getting trapped in these crevices and reducing the risk of cavities.

The Benefits of Fissure Sealants:

  1. Cavity Prevention: Fissure Sealants provide an extra layer of protection to the vulnerable chewing surfaces of teeth, significantly reducing the likelihood of cavities in these areas.
  2. Minimally Invasive: Applying Fissure Sealants is a simple and painless procedure that requires no drilling or anesthesia. It is a non-invasive approach to preventing tooth decay.
  3. Long-lasting Protection: Once applied, Fissure Sealants can last for several years, safeguarding the teeth during their most cavity-prone years.
  4. Child-Friendly Solution: Fissure Sealants are particularly beneficial for children who may have difficulty maintaining proper oral hygiene in the hard-to-reach areas of their molars and premolars.
  5. Cost-Effective Prevention: Investing in Fissure Sealants can save you money in the long run by reducing the need for more extensive and expensive dental treatments like fillings or root canals.
  6. Quick Application: The process of applying Fissure Sealants is quick and can often be completed during a routine dental check-up.

What are fissure sealants, and how do they work?

Fissure sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. These teeth often have deep grooves and pits (fissures) that can trap food particles and bacteria, leading to cavities. Fissure sealants create a barrier, preventing food and bacteria from accumulating in these fissures, reducing the risk of decay.

Are fissure sealants suitable for both children and adults?

Yes, fissure sealants are suitable for both children and adults. They are typically applied to children’s permanent molars as soon as they erupt to protect them from decay. However, adults with deep fissures and high cavity risk can also benefit from getting fissure sealants.

Is the application of fissure sealants a painful procedure?

No, the application of fissure sealants is a quick and painless procedure. It does not involve any drilling or anesthesia. The tooth surface is thoroughly cleaned, and the sealant material is applied as a liquid and then hardened using a special curing light.

How long do fissure sealants last?

Fissure sealants can last for several years with proper care. However, their longevity can vary depending on factors such as the patient’s oral hygiene practices, the wear on the sealant from chewing, and other individual factors. Your dentist will regularly check the sealants during routine check-ups and may reapply them if necessary.

Do fissure sealants require special care?

Fissure sealants do not require any special care. However, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly, as well as attending regular dental check-ups. Avoiding overly sticky or hard foods can also help preserve the longevity of the sealants.
