Prevention is better than cure. Fissure sealants play an important role in this mantra especially when it comes to children’s teeth.
Fissure sealants are a type of hard, protective coating that is applied to teeth in order to protect the deep grooves aka. Fissures. Fissure sealants are usually applied to the teeth at the back of the mouth (molars and premolars) which are mostly used for chewing. Since these teeth have deep grooves that can collect bacteria and food they are at a higher risk of decay.
Fissure sealants are ideal for children and are a great preventive measure to prevent tooth decay. So to protect your kids teeth, call our dental team in Bendigo to find out more.
