At Smile Hawthorn, we have a strong focus on preventing dental diseases like decay.
Many teeth have deep, convoluted grooves and sealing them can reduce the chance of the tooth becomming decayed.
It is a simple, quick, painless and inexpensive way of minimsing the risk decay whilst making cleaning your teeth easier.
Placing fissure seals is like painting over a deep paint scratch on a car.
There is a chance that nothing will happen if you don't paint the scratch or there is a chance that rust may set in and you will need a new car panel.
Similarly, you may not have any issues, but there is a possibility that without proper care and monitoring you may end up with a cavity and a more expensive filling.
Dr. Andrew will discuss the need for sealing deep grooves whilst considering your risk status for decay in your teeth.
