As part of our commitment to preventing tooth decay, we provide your child with dental sealants.
Dental sealants coat the top of your child’s teeth to prevent any food or bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves and crevices in each tooth.
Without dental sealants, this trapped food and bacteria can lead to decay.
How do dental sealants work?
This is a quick and entirely painless treatment: it only takes a few minutes per tooth.
Your child’s teeth will be cleaned and then the fissure sealant will be applied and allowed to set hard – a special light will be shone on the solution to help it dry more quickly.
Your child should avoid eating or drinking for half an hour following treatment to ensure that the solution is properly set.
Will dental sealants help my child?
We recommend dental sealants for all of our youngest patients because even with diligent brushing, tooth decay is very common in children. Dental sealants provide an added layer of protection that we feel benefits all children.
How long do dental sealants last?
Dental sealants can last for several years but they can become worn down and may need to be replaced occasionally. Regular, twice-yearly examinations will help us to keep an eye on your child’s sealants and make sure they are still doing their job.
Interested in dental sealants?
If you are concerned about your child’s teeth and if they have tooth decay, find your nearest Damira practice and contact our friendly team to arrange an appointment with one of our dentists.

Words from our clients
I was very happy with the service I received! I was made to feel very relaxed. Dr Usman explained in detail everything which needed to be done whilst I was holding a mirror and showed me what he was going to do. I was offered the work to be done on my teeth there and then which really pleased me. Highly recommend.
Everyone I saw was compassionate, patient and kind. Having been nervous coming for a check-up and hygienist appointment, there was no judgement and I experienced great care from everyone.
Absolutely brilliant work and the staff are so helpful and friendly they couldn’t do enough for me. I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting staff and dentists that want what’s best for you! No pressure into having unnecessary treatment, they want what’s best for you. They all go above and beyond thank you to the team!
“I had an amazing experience today! Honestly. I Went for 2 fillings. Dr. Yap is amazing. He made me feel very comfortable, answered my questions and just reassured me. I didn’t feel any pain and was calm. Although I was extremely nervous. I am so happy! Even if you are the most nervous patient in the world he will make you feel safe!”
“A huge thank you to dentist Ed, nurse Lois and manager extraordinaire Clare, my phobia kept me up the night before treatment and I still can’t believe how easy you all made it. No pain, loads of support and understanding. I highly recommend your outstanding service.”
