We highly recommend fissure sealants for protecting children’s teeth but there is no reason why adults cannot benefit from this treatment, provided your teeth are cavity free, do not have any fillings or any signs of decay.
How Could Fissure Sealants Help Me
Fissure sealants are a very straightforward yet effective way of protecting the chewing surfaces of back teeth as these surfaces are particularly vulnerable to tooth decay. They simply consist of a very thin layer of plastic material that is painted onto these surfaces, protecting them and sealing them. The process to apply these sealants is quick and completely painless and afterwards you will be able to eat and drink normally. Fissure sealants should last for many years but if they become chipped or worn then we can replace them for you.
If you are interested in fissure sealants, then please ask our dentist if this treatment might be suitable for you. You can call us on (07) 5442 2136. Woombye Dental is located at 31 Blackall Street, Woombye QLD 4559.
