Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealant is a thin, coating applied on the chewing surfaces of teeth, which acts as a barrier and protecting the tooth from plaque and acids. It is highly effective treatment in preventing decay. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

Typically, children should get fissure sealants on their permanent molars and premolars when they erupt.
