Dental Fissure Sealants
Looking for an effective way to protect your kids from tooth decay? You should know more about Dental Fissure Sealants.
As molars and premolars erupt, their crowns are innately occupied with small pits and grooves. These are called Dental Fissures. Although it is normal for teeth to have these fissures, they can pose a problem later on.

What Are Dental Fissure Sealants?
Food particles and bacteria might get trapped within these tiny crevices. Moreover, this situation can easily worsen as these narrow gaps are too small to be cleaned out by brushing teeth. In time, as more and more food particles and bacteria accumulate in these areas, tooth decay arises. In order to prevent this you can have Dental Fissure Sealants done by your trusted dentist in Brisbane at Malouf Dental.
Dental Fissure Sealants are made of composite resin which is applied on the crowns of molars and premolars. This keeps bacteria and food particles from entering and getting trapped in your dental fissures. The sealants act as a sturdy barrier that effectively prevents tooth decay. With this treatment and proper oral hygiene your kids will grow up with better oral health without the perils of tooth decay.

Sealants are only applied to the back teeth – the molars and premolars.
The process is usually quick, and can usually be only a few minutes for each tooth.
The process is completely pain free, and your teeth will not feel different after the procedure.
The sealants usually last a number of years, however it is a good idea to have them checked up by a dentist on a regular basis. This is just to make sure that the sealant is still intact, and to also make sure that no decay has occurred underneath it.
