Children's Dentistry

Confused About Fissures?

Fissures, crevices, pits or cracks may be part of the natural conformation of the tooth, usually in molars at the back of the mouth. Because the shape of the fissure easily catches food, they can be prone to decay and cavities.

LILLYBROOK DENTAL

How can fissures be treated?

Lillybrook Dental is happy to advise the treatment for fissures is simple, painless and inexpensive.

Our dentists are skilled in applying a white or clear sealant to the fissures to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Sealants may be recommended for the first molar teeth which appear around 6 years of age. It is also useful to have second molars checked when they break through around 13 years.

The procedure involves:

  • Cleaning and drying the tooth
  • Preparing the tooth surface so that the sealant will bond
  • Painting on the liquid sealant to fill the grooves and pits
  • Using a strong light to bond and harden the sealant
  • Checking your bite and polishing off any excess sealant.

An adjunct to fissure sealants is fluoride varnish, which can be applied to the teeth by a dental practitioner. This application, mostly used for young children at high risk of developing cavities needs to be applied 2 to 4 times a year.

LILLYBROOK DENTAL

What are the benefits and risks of fissure sealants?

Lillybrook Dental children’s dentists find using fissure sealant a sound preventive dentistry measure. After the procedure, it will be easier to brush and maintain the top of the fissure sealed teeth, however care should still be taken to brush the sides around teeth.

We will check the sealant on your regular check-up to see that it is in good condition. Should the sealant fall off or wear down over time, sealant needs to be reapplied, to continue to reduce tooth decay.

Time for your children’s regular hygiene check? Let’s book them in to check their need to fissures.

Testimonials

I’ve been to many different dentists over the years, and I would have to say that this is up there with the best! The staff are so professional, and yet so very friendly. The dentist himself, was also very friendly and did such a great job. I would highly recommend this dental surgery

Jodie

I can’t recommend Dr Raj and the team at Lillybrook Dental enough! I was 35 weeks pregnant and developed a terrible toothache (the worst timing!), they fit me in quickly and did everything they could to save the tooth, giving me all options and no pressure. I ended up needing a root canal and crown and was very upset and worried about the pain, they reassured me and despite the outcome for my tooth I had a great experience. The crown has been fitted and I am so happy with the end product. Highly recommend!

Ashley

Having been to various practices over time, and addressing issues with a “patch-up” approach, it was time to consult with a Dentist who could advise on a treatment plan that would provide longterm results. A friend recommended Lillybrook Dental. After a very thorough initial appointment Dr Raj put together a staged treatment plan to restore my teeth to their former glory. Six months later, thanks to Dr Raj and his team, I have my smile back. Most importantly I can eat the food I want without any fear of causing days of pain to my teeth or gums. I am so glad I put my trust in Lillybrook Dental. Thanks!

Steve

From the moment I walked in until the moment I left I felt very cared for by all of the staff I encountered. Everything was explained in detail as to what my options were and what the best choice would be for my treatmemt. Extremely accommodating and so kind, I felt completely at ease. With payment options such as Afterpay, Zippay and Openpay available, making it much more comfortable when it comes time to pay the bill.

Kerrie

I am a very anxious patient and Dr Raji is very calming and gentle in her care with me. She is also very patient with me and would highly recommend coming to Lillybrook Dental Surgery as the whole crew is lovely !

Hayley

Dr Raj and his team are always gentle, professional and very efficient. My husband and I have both had extractions done and Raj is so proficient at this.

The team are so kind and assuring as well which helps you feel calm. We totally recommend them for all your family dental care.

Melissa

I have nothing put praise for the friendliness of Ena on the front desk she is just the right person for the job. Then we have Dr Raj who has been very kind and gentle with doing any dental work on my teeth. He explains every bit of work that needs to be done in layman terms which is great and his dental nurse is very caring.


Thanks for the great experience and will continue visiting your Surgery .
