Have you been to the dentist and absolutely dread the thought of a drill in your mouth? Well, it turns out that most people have had a filling of some sort. At Langmore Dental, we’re experts in all sorts of oral and dental hygiene, including fissure sealants.
Fissure sealants or dental sealants are thin coatings of white or clear dental material applied to the grooves and pits of teeth. Known as tiny fillings, fissure sealants are designed for molars to protect the tooth decay by keeping food and bacteria out of the grooves.
Applying a fissure sealant is similar to the application of a filling, without requiring the use of drills or removal of any parts of your teeth.
At Langmore Dental, we know that one procedure isn’t the solution for every patient. That’s why we offer a variety of services that are specifically chosen to suit your smile and budget. Often, it turns out that smaller treatments such as fissure sealants or fillings can prevent the need for much larger dental work down the track. This applies to adults and children.
Children dentistry is a service we offer, and we provide fissure sealants for kids and young children too. We refer to this as preventative dentistry, saving you time, money and your smile in the future.
So, if you notice something funny about a tooth, whether it’s a change in colour or a sensation, visit us at our Berwick dental surgery.
