Fissure Seals

Even vigilant brushing sometimes isn’t enough to remove the plaque which gathers in the grooves on the biting surface of your back teeth, left unchecked however this plaque will lead to decay.

Given our prevention is better than cure belief, we recommend protecting these molars or partially erupted wisdom teeth with a hard plastic coating called a pit and fissure sealant.

Fissure sealing is a painless procedure as no injection or drilling is required. The sealant used virtually matches the tooth colour, and it almost invisible.

Fissure sealing is a simple and effective way of preventing decay and due to its preventative nature private health funds usually rebate generously.
