Fissure Sealants at Pearl Smile Dental Group

Protect your young adult teeth from tooth decay

With regular visits to see our dentists, we will be able to check your teeth for any initial signs of decay. It is important for children and teenagers to see the dentist at least every six months once their adult teeth have grown though. Whenever food is consumed, it can get stuck in between the teeth and within the grooves at the top of the tooth. These are known as fissures and if food settles, the bacteria can start to attack the teeth.

Fissure Sealants for Children

Children, teenagers and young adults may not brush and clean their teeth thoroughly but also sometimes brushing and rinsing may not be able to remove all the food sufficiently every time. If our dentists detects signs of settled food or tooth decay within the fissures, then a sealant will be advised to help protect the tooth from deteriorating further.

A tooth filling may not be required at an early stage of decay. Fissure sealants do not require any drilling and can be easily applied. The affected tooth will be cleaned, dried and then a resin will be bonded to seal the fissure. The resin will then harden which will form the necessary protection required.

Fissure Sealant Treatment

The material used is just as hard as a white filling so the tooth will be protected for a good length of time. Regular dental check-ups are still advised to see if any of the repaired teeth are in good order and functioning well. As soon as treatment is complete, the patient can eat and drink as normal.

Fissure Sealant treatment prices start at £65.20. If you would like further information about fissure sealants please contact our friendly reception team at Pearl Smile Dental Group.

Naema is a fantastic hygienist! Went in with periodontal disease and after a frank talk and some really useful practical advice I’m on the road to recovery. Five stars.

Following my appointment of today with Naima Algwil, I am delighted with the service I have received. I am a nervous patient who has recently suffered with periodontitis, resulting in extremely sensitive gums. With the use of a hand-held mirror, Naima has taken time to explain and demonstrate clearly how to improve my brushing technique. She has also shown me how to use the Tepe brushes effectively. I have applied her recommendations which have made a considerable improvement to the health of my gums in a relatively short space of time. Naima has a very reassuring and professional manner. which I appreciate. I will continue to follow her advice. Thank you Naima!

I’ve recently had two fillings with Dr Malik and she has been amazing in terms of explaining everything and making me feel comfortable. I can not recommend her and the practice enough!

Our Dentist was very caring of all my children's needs including my 9 month old too. He helped make them feel at ease. Excellent communication skills and attention to detail. Offering the best care to each of them.

I've been attending this practice for many years now, & I stay with the practice as the quality of the dentistry is superb. The work Dr Nilesh Bhavsar has done for me over the years has truly been second to none, he is very precise and displays excellent dexterity. Years ago I was butchered by an emergency dentist elsewhere who did a terrible extraction leaving shards of broken tooth in my gums, following that I registered here - not only did Dr Bhavsar fix that but apart from regular check ups, fillings etc I've had a couple of challenging issues such as a very complex trapped nerve/ root canal - that I'd previously been told I'd need to see a specialist for - & a bridge (with false tooth) to fill a gap. The dentistry has been beyond anything I've received elsewhere in 40+ years & I am deeply impressed and beyond grateful for the skilled care. I never feel rushed and I always get suggestions/ feedback on where I need to brush better or less hard. I also bring my child here to see another dentist and am equally pleased with the care, patience & understanding shown. In recent times the practice has invested in some remodelling, which has opened up the building entrance and reception area and it has made a great improvement. New phone system and some new reception staff are other positives and on my first visit of 2023 I was really impressed with seeing the changes & the overall uplift to the feel of the practice which is now a better reflection of the most important part, the excellent dental care.

The staff at Pearl Smile have always been great, very welcoming and friendly. After my orthodontic treatment I needed a great deal of work on my teeth to get that perfect smile that I’ve always wanted. Dr Nilesh Bhavsar has been one of the best dentists that I’ve ever visited and advised me for the right treatment that I needed. His confidence and expertise really gave me the comfort knowing I was in good hands, he is such a perfectionist in his work. Thank you to all at Pearl Smile, I do have those perfect set of teeth now!!
