fissure treatments

Fissures are grooves on the biting surface of back teeth which can be difficult to clean. For high risk patients, your dentist can place a sealant which is a thin layer of plastic (a bit like nail varnish), on this surface making it easier to keep clean.

What are the benefits?
•  Fissure sealants help prevent decay, particularly in high risk patients.
•  They can last for years but it is important to get them checked regularly so that
    can be repaired if required.
