W Dental Baldivis provides Dental Fissure Sealants for you and your family.
Fissure Sealants are a filling type material that is used to seal the deep grooves in your molars. Without sealants, food can easily become stuck in these areas.
Remember those times when you were munching on a bag of potato chips, peanuts, or starburst lollies? I’m sure you’re all aware of that unpleasant feeling of food stuck in the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Perhaps that’s your body’s way of telling you to get rid of those pieces of cavity causing food!
Chewing gum and drinking water on a regular basis is an excellent way to promote saliva production and clear stuck food particles. However, there will be times where this is just not practical or available.
Sealants protect the enamel in these hard to reach areas which are at greater risk of decay. They will also make it easier for you to clean the surfaces of your molars by smoothing out the deep grooves. We particularly recommend them for children, once their permanent teeth have erupted, as their brushing technique is not always up to scratch. If you need to see a dentist for sealants, W Dental Baldivis is here to take care of all your needs.
