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. Fissure sealants can be placed for adults as well, in any teeth that have deep or narrow grooves.
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 and microscopes that ensure that every treatment is as precise as possible.
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.
