Terrigal Dental recommends the placement of fissure sealants for children with adult teeth that have very deep and narrow grooves.
When children learn to clean their teeth, there usually are many areas they tend to miss – such as the back teeth (molars). These teeth have natural grooves where bacteria from food residue can get stuck and cause tooth decay over time. Placing a fissure sealant is one of the best ways to prevent that.
Dental pit and fissure sealants are hard, protective coatings that cover and protect the deep grooves and allow for effective cleaning with a toothbrush, thereby reducing your child’s decay risk. Terrigal Dental recommends placing fissure sealants for children with adult teeth with very deep and narrow grooves. Apart from placing a fissure sealant for the child, we can place a fissure sealant for adults as well.
We firmly believe that the best dental services can be provided only with the most up-to-date technology. This is exactly why we have digital X-ray machines that allow for X-rays with the lowest radiation dose, pain-free electronic anaesthetic delivery, microscopes that ensure that every treatment is as precise as possible, and many more.
We at Terrigal Dental also believe that keeping patients waiting creates stress and anxiety. For this reason, we very rarely run late, which means that you will not be spending too much time in our patient lounge – even though it is a very nice and relaxing space.
We aim to provide our patients with a warm, welcoming environment in our patient lounge, which is equipped with the latest magazines and a Nespresso machine and water. It is essential to know that we are not a large, corporate practice with a new dentist every few months. We are a local team of husband and wife who are dentists and practice owners at the same time. You can be sure that the dental services offered here are completely unmatched, so you will not make a mistake if you choose Terrigal Dental!BOOK APPOINTMENT
