Protective sealants for children’s teeth
At TC Dental, we go the extra mile to ensure the oral health of our young patients. Alongside our comprehensive preventative dentistry services, we are delighted to offer the effective decay-preventative treatment of fissure sealants. These protective shields are a simple yet remarkable defense against cavities.
How do fissure sealants work?
Fissure sealants function as shields for your teeth. They consist of transparent plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces to safeguard against cavities. These powerful shields seal the tiny grooves, especially in the molars or grinders, to create barriers that prevent food particles and harmful bacteria from infiltrating these vulnerable areas. This layer of dental protection lowers the risk of tooth decay developing, which is especially beneficial to children while they learn to care for their permanent teeth.
Safe and painless application
Our experienced dentists follow a simple and painless process when applying fissure sealants. First, the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and prepared, after which a bonding agent is carefully applied. Once the agent has air-dried, the sealant is delicately applied to each treated tooth. A special curing light is used to ensure the sealant sets properly.
This treatment typically takes only a few minutes per tooth, making it quick and hassle-free. Rest assured, fissure sealant treatments are entirely safe and painless, ensuring a comfortable experience for your child.
From early childhood to adulthood
We highly recommend fissure sealant treatment for children when their permanent molars have fully emerged, usually between 6 and 7. However, this preventive measure can also benefit teenagers or adults who frequently experience tooth decay.
