Fissure Sealants in Noosa

The team at The Dental Junction provides you with a full suite of services to ensure that you love your smile. Much of what we do is designed to prevent future problems. Having fissure sealants applied to your back teeth can give you extra protection from tooth decay. This coating blocks bacteria and food particles from gathering on these teeth, which can be more difficult to clean. A fissure sealant makes them easy to clean.

The white-coloured or clear coating is placed over your tooth. It prevents food, bacteria and acid from lodging into the pits of teeth that you may have a challenging time reaching with your toothbrush. A sealant will wear off within a few years, so it is not permanent. You can have them reapplied regularly.

It’s best to avoid sticky foods, which may pull away the protective layer.

Should Children Get Them?

We recommend fissure sealants on a child’s molars as soon as they have erupted. The first set comes in around age 6, with the second erupting at approximately age 12. Adults are also eligible to have fissure sealants.

What to Expect

The procedure to have fissure sealants placed is simple. It can be completed at your routine checkups with us. Just a few minutes are needed, and you won’t have to worry about anaesthetic or discomfort.

First, some cotton will be used to isolate the tooth we are addressing. Then, we’ll roughen the outer layer of the enamel so that the sealant will stick. Once applied, we’ll cure the sealant material with a bright light. You may notice a difference in how your bite feels for a few days afterwards.
