If a tooth has suffered from mild decay then a fissure sealant can be used to protect the tooth from further decay. Food often settles within the grooves on the top surface of the tooth. This area of the tooth is known as the fissure and sometimes a toothbrush is unable to effectively remove the food that is stuck.
Fissure sealants are a painless treatment and the affected tooth does not require any drilling. Our dentist will apply a special resin to bond to the surface of the tooth after it has been thoroughly cleaned. Once the resin has hardened it seals the surface of the tooth forming a protective coating that can last for a good length of time.
