Fissure Sealants

Our teeth have chewing surfaces with tiny grooves and ridges called fissures. These fissures can trap food particles and bacteria, leading to cavities.

Fissure sealants offer a preventive solution reducing the risk of caries initiation and containing caries progression. This painless procedure involves applying a thin layer of tooth-colored material to seal the fissures on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Serving as a protective shield, it effectively prevents the accumulation of food debris and bacteria, thereby averting decay.
