Protect your Child's Teeth with Fissure Sealants

What are Fissure Sealants?

This is a sealant placed on the top surface of a tooth, and is usually used to protect the first permanent molar teeth in children. Fissure Sealants are usually placed once all permanent first molars have erupted fully around 8 years of age.

Why are Fissure Sealants needed?

If you are unsure if you need a filling, please come in and get a check up with us. During a checkup, we will be able to examine the surfaces of each tooth, and decide if you need a filling or not.

If your teeth are over sensitive, if you have a toothache, a sharp or throbbing pain or pain when eating, these are signs you should come in for a checkup.
Also if you notice any changes in your teeth, such as a hole that you can see or feel, a rough or broken tooth then its also advisable to get your teeth checked out.

Fissure sealants are very helpful in preventing tooth decay in the child’s first permanent molars. Normally fissure sealants are placed by the School Dentist as part of the Free School Dental Service, luckily this service is also available at this practice.

How much do fissure sealants cost?

Currently we charge €20 per tooth for fissure sealants. If you have require a large number of sealants talk to us regarding a price.

    Happy Patients

    My experience in the O Connor dental health was pleasent.As a person who is nervous about visiting the dentist i felt very relaxed both in the waiting room and on the chair.Over the years i have attended a few different dentists and this has been the one practice where i felt relaxed and at ease due to the care of the staff. Before my procedures it was explained to me by the staff what to expect and i found this helped put me at ease. For any one who is nervous of visiting the dentists i would strongly recommend this practice.



    My daughter needed orthodontic treatment. Tony did a very comprehensive plan for my daughter and went through it with me and my daughter in great detail before he began the treatment. We knew how long it was going to take and what exactly was involved. What I liked about Tony was, he was so enthusiastic himself about the treatment and took great pride in getting it right, tweaking a bit here and there to make sure he got the best result. He explained everything to my daughter and encouraged her through the treatment. Tony does not just look at the teeth but also the shape of her mouth and the overall look. I would highly recommend Tony and his team, he is a genuine, passionate and meticulous about his work and a very nice person as well. My daughter has a lovely smile and my younger daughter can't wait to start her treatment as she sees the fantastic results of Tony's work and can't wait to have the same fantastic smile.
