What are fissures?
Grooves in the chewing surface of the back teeth are called fissures. They can be hard to clean which means those teeth are at extra risk of decay. Fissure sealants are made of a clear colourless resin that is painted onto the teeth. Once dried it becomes very tough. They are mainly used for children once they get their permanent teeth.
What is the process?
The teeth will be cleaned, dried and the surface will be roughened with an acid. Once the mouth is fully dried, the dentist will paint the resin sealant onto the fissures and harden it using a bright light. You will check if the tooth is comfortable to bite on and the dentist will trim the sealant.
