Fissure Sealants in North Balwyn, Melbourne
Fissure sealants are a protective tooth-coloured resin coating that can be used to stop decay from forming.
Teeth with deep grooves that cannot be reached by the fine bristles of a toothbrush are susceptible to plaque (bacteria). If the bacteria build up in the groove of the tooth, it can cause decay.
Fissure sealants are painted onto the biting surfaces of the back teeth and are hardened by applying a concentrated beam of light. Dentists have used them for decades, and they are a highly effective and inexpensive way of preventing decay
