Fissure seals are a preventative measure for teeth which haven’t had any fillings as yet.
As soon as adult molars come through, plaque will develop on the biting surface as children don’t have the dexterity or co-ordination to brush it off properly.
To prevent this from staining and decaying, a hard plastic resin material can be flowed into this area, this prevents any decay from starting; these are called fissure seals.
Fissure seals are a quarter of the cost of fillings, therefore preventing your child from having to go through the “scary” filling process. If your child is eligible for the Child Dental Benefit Scheme through Medicare, these are bulk billed. Call us today.
