Fissure Sealants

FISSURE SEALANTS

Have the smile you’ve always wanted...
The chewing surface of a molar tooth contains natural pits and grooves (fissures) where dental decay occurs most often. The bristles of a toothbrush are too large to reach into some of these areas.
Therefore the bacteria in plaque live in these grooves and make acid which causes tooth decay. Dental sealants assist in preventing the buildup of plaque acids on the enamel surface of the tooth.
Therefore the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and dried before applying the sealant. The liquid sealant is placed onto the surface of the tooth and flows into the pits and fissures. 
The liquid is then set with an ultra violet light. The pits and fissures are now sealed and the tooth surface is smooth and easy to keep clean.
