How Do I Stop Cavities?

Cavities can be stopped from forming by the placement of fissure sealant in the grooves of the teeth to prevent food and debris from getting stuck in the grooves of the teeth and causing decay.

Fissure Sealant is a sealant for your grooves suitable for anyone who has deep pits and grooves in their teeth and are perfect for kids and teenagers who often don’t brush as well as they should! They are painless, quick, non invasive and a great preventive measure for protecting your teeth. Some of the materials we use for fissure sealant leak healthy fluoride ions into the tooth helping prevent the formation of decay, every time you brush your teeth these fillings recharge and continue to leak a small amount of fluoride.

The procedure often does not involve any drilling, and requires no anaesthetic.

Please talk to you dental professional if you are concerned about deep grooves. Alternatively you can also use a fluoride mouthwash or as a fluoride free alternative GC tooth mouse  cream to help fight against cavities.
