Fissure sealants are a safe and comfortable way of protecting teeth against decay. Pits and fissures are the deep grooves that make up the chewing surface of your teeth.
Sometimes, grooves are so deep that it’s impossible for the bristles of a toothbrush to keep the surface clean. In these cases we may apply a dental sealant, commonly known as a fissure seal, to fill the pits and fissures and act as a barrier to plaque, bacteria and food debris.
