Fissure Sealants in Canberra

Fissure Sealants at Shine DentistsAt Shine Dentists, we believe cavity prevention is essential during the early years of life. It’s a tooth-coloured liquid applied to adult molar teeth. The chewing surface is coated and stays on for several years. Pits and grooves are inevitable in premolars and molars, making it difficult to clean. When food particles are trapped, a bacteria breeding ground is developed that easily forms cavities.

A fissure sealant will fill the pits and involves three separate steps:

  1. The teeth are cleaned and dried
  2. The chewing surface is prepared
  3. A small brush paints on the sealant, which is then hardened with an ultraviolet light
