Fissure sealants can benefit both children and adults as they can be used as a preventitive measure before fillings are required. Fissures (grooves) in your molars can be very hard to clean when they are deep so cavities can develop if food is trapped.
Fissure sealants can be applied once all permanent teeth have erupted (around 13 years) and are designed to protect grooves in molars from cavities.
The whole process is quick and painless for the patient. At your regular check-ups your dentist will check the sealant to ensure its effectiveness. Most can last for several years before requiring follow-up treatment.
