Fissure Sealants in Fairfield and Hampton VIC
What if you could protect your teeth from cavities by blocking out the bacteria that cause them? That’s exactly what pit and fissure sealants are designed to do.
Seal off Deep Pits and Grooves
Dental sealants coat the deep pits and grooves that naturally form in your teeth. These areas are more susceptible to tooth decay, because they are so difficult to keep clean. By protecting them, acids and bacteria are unable to cause cavities in those areas.
Improve Oral Health
Toothbrush bristles are too wide to clean the microscopic pits and grooves of your teeth. After a sealant is placed over these grooves, toothbrushing can easily and effectively remove plaque and bacteria from the sealed tooth.
Sealants are non-invasive protective restorations that do not require tooth alteration in order for them to be placed. There are no drills, lasers, or special instruments needed. The material is simply brushed onto the tooth and bonds directly with the microscopic pores of tooth enamel.
Simple. Easy. Effective.
Placing sealants on you, or your child’s teeth is an extremely simple process that takes only a few minutes per tooth. First, the tooth is cleaned and conditioned to optimise the bonding process. Then the sealant material is brushed onto the tooth and dried with a bright curing light. Once fully hardened, you can chew on the tooth normally without any discomfort or sensitivity.
Fissure sealants can be completed during your cleaning appointment or during a short visit to our office. Give us a call to schedule an appointment at either of our locations.
