If basic oral habits are maintained and a consistent visit to your dentists at Maryborough is implemented, then your sealants can last for at least two years.
Your dentist may recommend them if you have deep grooves that are susceptible to bacteria growth. Unfortunately, typical brushing and flossing do not reach these parts hence the requirement for sealants.
Fissure sealants are mostly applied to children due to the eruption of new molar teeth. They can be applied from as early as 6 years old. Some adults may require them as well. It’s also important to visit regularly to ensure the sealants do not come off.
For both adults and children, the complication of fissure sealants may be the same. You may experience an allergic reaction and a change in your bite.
