Fissure Sealants

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a preventative treatment best applied to your child’s adult back teeth soon after they erupt. These teeth contain intricate fissures that can easily trap decay-causing bacteria. Fissure sealants seal these tooth surfaces, preventing infection and decay by forming a thin protective layer of flowable composite resin or GIC that quickly hardens after application.
