When tooth decay starts to affect a tooth, it often enters via the grooves on the top of the teeth which are called "Fissures". Once decay goes through the fissures and enters deeper into the dentine of the tooth, the tooth becomes very dark in colour and a cavity occurs.
Here at KR Dental we can prevent early decay from becoming a cavity by performing a procedure called a Fissure Sealant. This involves thoroughly cleaning the stained fissures on the tooth and then placing a layer of protective plastic (Composite Resin) into the cleaned fissure to seal out the decay. Fissure Sealants are performed without the need for drilling the tooth and do not normally require any anaesthetic.

Recently Dr Miller and his Dental Assistant Nadia also made a special visit to our local Florence Kindergarten and then at a later date Dr Miller and Dental Assistant Becky also visited the Sesame Lane Kindergarten where they had a great time teaching the Kindy kids about good Oral Health and the importance of a good Oral Hygiene routine. At the end of their special demonstrations all the kids received a Dental Health pack with lots of goodies inside.
