Fissure Sealants

Deep pits, fissures or grooves in teeth often cannot be reached by the fine bristles of a tooth brush. Plaque (bacteria) can then get trapped in the groove and produce acid that may cause tooth decay. A fissure sealant is a protective tooth coloured hard resin coating that is bonded in the grooves (fissure) and pits of teeth to help stop decay from forming.
