Fissure Sealants in Cheltenham

man in dental chairFissure sealants are a preventative dental treatment that involves coating the chewing surfaces of back teeth with a thin, plastic layer. This helps to prevent bacteria and plaque from becoming trapped in the deep grooves and pits on the teeth, which can lead to tooth decay over time.

Fissure sealants are particularly effective for children, as their teeth are still developing and have deep grooves that are more susceptible to decay. However, they can also be beneficial for adults who have deep grooves on their teeth that are difficult to clean properly.

When is the Best Time to Get Fissure Sealants?

The best time to get fissure sealants is when the teeth are starting to erupt and the deep grooves are fully visible. The earlier the sealants are applied, the better the chances of preventing tooth decay.

Sealants may need to be topped up over time, as they can wear down with regular use. However, this is a simple and painless procedure that can help to maintain good oral health in the long term.

Benefits of Treatment

This treatment is a safe and effective way to prevent tooth decay in both children and adults. They are a non-invasive treatment that does not require any drilling or anaesthesia, making them ideal for people who may be nervous about dental procedures.

Sealants can also help to build confidence in children when it comes to dental care, as they are a painless and easy way to protect their teeth from decay.
