Fissure Sealants

Fissure Sealants Kellyville Ridge

Fissure sealants are clear resin, similar to white fillings, that act as a barrier against bacteria that cause plaque. They help prevent tooth decay and cavities.

Fissure sealants are usually applied to the grooves and pits of the back molars. These are the common areas for cavities in the teeth. The procedure can be conducted by your Kellyville Ridge dentist.

Factors for getting fissure sealants are individual to patients or teeth that are at high risk of dental caries.

This includes patients with:

  • A history of dental caries
  • Deep retentive pits and fissures
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Early signs of dental caries
  • Poor plaque control
  • Enamel defects, such as enamel hypoplasia
  • Orthodontic appliances

The Fissure Sealant Application Procedure

Fissure sealant application is very simple when performed by your Kellyville Ridge dentist.

Teeth are prepared and cleaned thoroughly, as food particles and saliva can prevent the sealant from sticking to the tooth.

  1. The tooth surface is rinsed with an acid gel or a chemical solution, to ensure that the sealant bonds to the tooth.
  2. An adhesive is applied below the sealant.
  3. The sealant is applied.
  4. Depending on the type of sealant to be applied, a specialised light may be used to cure the material.
  5. The liquid sealant forms a strong barrier on the tooth surface.
  6. The bite is inspected, and excess material is polished away.

At-home Care

Your dentist at Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge recommends check-ups twice a year so that tooth decay or sealant loss can be monitored.

Teeth that are sealed don’t necessarily need any routine changes at home or changes in diet. Although fissure sealants help prevent decay on the molar teeth, it is still important to brush and floss teeth properly to avoid the factors that can cause tooth decay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which teeth should be sealed?
Fissure sealants are applied to the teeth at the back of the mouth – the molars and premolars, which have pits and fissures on their biting surfaces where cavities often occur.
What is involved in the fissure sealant procedure?
The procedure is usually fast and simple, taking a short time for each tooth. The tooth is sanitised, prepared with a special solution, and dried. The sealant is then applied and hardened with a curing light.
Is it painful?
No, it is totally pain-free.
Are sealants long-lasting?
If properly taken care of, sealants will last for several years, but our dental team in Kellyville Ridge will check them regularly and make sure that the sealant is still intact.
How do fissure sealants function?
Fissure sealants are smooth, protective barriers that cover all the little grooves and dips in the surface of the tooth.
