Fissure Sealants in Bristol

Fissure sealants are used to protect vulnerable teeth, particularly those towards the back of the mouth. A resin coating is applied to the biting surface of the tooth to prevent food particles and bacteria becoming trapped and leading to decay. Most commonly used for children’s teeth, fissure sealants can also be used for adults who are particularly concerned about preventing cavities.

Looking after teeth susceptible to decay

Fissures are the naturally occurring grooves on the top surface of molar and pre-molar teeth. It is very easy for tiny food particles to become trapped within them and missed while brushing. Bacteria can then develop and lead to decay and eventually a cavity.

A sealant protects against this happening by coating the tooth surface to form a protective shield, preventing food and bacteria from settling. While very effective, the treatment is also very simple and quick, making it an ideal treatment for children.
