Fissure Sealants Protect Your Child's Teeth Quickly and Painlessly

It is typical for children and teenagers to suffer from dental cavities and tooth decay.

In the absence of an adult to guide them, children often struggle to brush their teeth properly. As a result, cavities may form if food debris are not completely removed and preventive treatment such as sealants or filling is not provided.

Prospect Road Dental’s fissure sealant is an effective preventative measure against the onset of tooth decay. Sealants are a great way to keep the teeth healthy and cavity-free. They work by protecting the chewing surfaces of molars, which act as an effective barrier against food particles that may promote cavities in these hard-to-reach places. The importance of caring for your child’s teeth cannot be overstated. To ensure that they stay healthy and strong, call us today on 08 9399 2037 to schedule an appointment.

Reasons Why Your Child Needs Pits and Fissure Sealants

Fissures and pits on molar teeth:
Naturally, it is common for pits and fissures in the mouth to deepen over time, which leads to dental caries. Getting a sealant treatment to cover the grooves and hollows of teeth protects them from harmful bacteria and prevents plaque accumulation.
Risks of tooth decay and caries:
Infections are more likely to occur in large fissures and pits near the back teeth since bacteria can quickly accumulate in them. Getting sealants from Prospect Road Dental can help prevent bacteria from building up on teeth, which can lead to decay and other dental problems.

Using a fissure sealant is a way to prevent tooth decay from occurring. Sealants are most commonly used on pre-molar and molar teeth in children and teenagers, as they are more susceptible to cavities. 

The dentist will conduct a thorough examination and evaluation to determine which teeth and how many should be covered with dental sealants. It is also important to consider whether sealants are suitable for your child’s oral health and whether they are necessary.

It is estimated that fissure sealants will last between five and ten years, depending on the quality of the material used and how thoroughly they are placed.

In most cases, the application of sealants is quick and straightforward, taking only a few minutes per tooth.

  • After cleaning, the dentist will condition and dry the tooth’s surface.
  • The sealant is applied onto the tooth surface to seep into the tooth’s grooves.
  • The sealant hardens and adheres to the tooth when exposed to blue light.
  • Upon sealing the tooth, it provides complete protection.
  • Any excess sealant will be removed after the dentist examines your bite.
A fissure sealant application is quick and painless. This procedure is less complicated and takes less time than a cavity filling.
The cost of fissure sealants ranges from $40 to $90 per tooth.

Dental sealants can be a great way to stop the progression of cavities before they form, similar to how dental cleaning is preventative. Like most preventive treatments they can be covered for little or no cost under your health insurance plan
