As a parent you will want to do all you can to protect your children’s teeth from dental decay. Your child’s teeth are particularly susceptible to attack from harmful mouth acid which can result in cavities. To prevent this from happening composite resin fissure sealants can be bonded onto the vulnerable tooth surfaces protecting the fissures from acid attack. The treatment is carried out when your child reaches the age of 6 and again at 11 when the first and second adult molars come through.
Age needn’t stop you from protecting the vulnerable surfaces of your teeth as you can have fissure sealants restorations placed in adulthood.
