Fissure sealants should be done once your child’s permanent adult teeth have started to come through to protect them from decay.

THE ‘WAND’ CHILDRENS’S DENTAL ANAESTHETIC
When it comes to pain, we literally have a magic wand to take it away! Ideally suited to treating children, the cutting edge wand anaesthetic treatment offers a computer controlled anaesthetic administration with no massive needles or painful prodding deep
in the mouth.
The unit itself looks just like a biro and nothing like a scary syringe; the needle that administers the anaesthetic
is very fine and tiny so the reality of administering the numbing substance is as un-scary as the kit itself.
The kit also allows us to use less anaesthetic, avoiding the “half my face is numb” effect for 3-4 hours afterwards.
