Sealants are designed to prevent tooth decay and cavities.
What do we do?
We apply sealants to the grooves, known as fissures, and pits of the back molars
A fissure sealant is a thin coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of teeth. A majority of dental decay begins in these deep grooves. Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.
What do fissure sealants involve?
The teeth to be sealed are thoroughly cleaned. A special solution is applied to the enamel surface to help the sealant bond to the teeth. The teeth are then rinsed and dried. Sealant material is carefully painted onto the enamel surface to cover the deep grooves or depressions.
Once they are set, they cannot be seen when you talk or smile. Sealants can last for several years before wearing out. Regular check-ups with Kew Dental will make sure your sealants are kept in good condition.
