Protect your teeth from decay and plaque.
Fissure sealants are required when grooves develop within your tooth. These fissures occur naturally on some of the teeth. These spaces can easily become filled with bacteria and food. Since these grooves are tough to clean efficiently, tooth decay can occur.
Ideally, a fissure sealant is applied within a year of a tooth eruption to keep harmful bacteria away. Many children and teenagers receive fissure sealants because decay can occur the minute the back teeth are fully grown. Still, some adults will require the procedure too.
Although it varies between individuals, fissure sealants can last multiple years before becoming worn down. However, routine checkups with the experts at Premier Dental Group in Roxburgh Park can help prolong the lifespan of your sealants.
