Preventive Sealants

The premolar and molar teeth are the largest teeth in the mouth. They have a larger surface area and have several grooves and pits on the chewing surface. These grooves can be deep and are a prime place for plaque and acid to build up and cause cavities. It is for this reason that many dentists will suggest applying sealants, especially on young children. 

A sealant is a coating that is applied to the chewing surface of the teeth creating a smooth surface to act as a barricade protecting it from decay.  Applying a sealant is a quick and easy procedure. It does not involve any anesthetic. After the teeth are cleaned, a chemical liquid is applied to the tooth. This will clean the tooth chemically from any decay process. The etching allows the sealant to bond with the tooth. The sealant is then applied in a liquid form and a light is applied to the surface of the tooth to speed up the hardening process. Sealants can be reapplied every 5 to 10 years. Sealants are very effective in preventing decay and in some cases can prevent additional damage where decay has already begun.

Can’t recommend Dr Ellie and her friendly team enough. I usually get very anxious at dental appointments but Dr Ellie and her team made it very smooth and easy for me. She talked me through the procedure and explained every option in details. She was thorough and gentle.

Dr Ash and his friendly and relaxed team were very accommodating. They fit me in an emergency slot first thing in the morning and fixed my toothache immediately and I was able to go into work that day.. very happy with their service and price too.

I went to see my regular dentist and was referred to a specialist surgeon for removing my wisdom teeth. I was told I needed to be asleep for the procedure at a private hospital but I couldn’t afford that. My friend recommended to try Surry Hills Dental as they have a good reputation for removing wisdom teeth. I was made an appointment to see Dr. Ash. I had a consultation with their team over the phone regarding the procedure and risks and on my first visit to their lovely cozy practice I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed! I got this done in the chair with the happy gas in less than an hour for about a quarter of the price I was quoted by the specialist and hospital… I’m so grateful I found this practice and will be seeing Dr. Ash for further check ups and treatment

My experience couldn’t have been better! Dr.Wu removed all 4 wisdom teeth (not easy cases either) and made it such a relaxing, safe and quick procedure. I was quite nervous going into the appointment but immediately started to feel calm and relaxed - thank you to the friendly, personable and accommodating staff. It was an excellent environment and I weirdly I had the best time from start to finish. What was even better was my recovery. I experienced only one day of soreness and after that I healed in less than a week. I seriously couldn’t rate my experience higher.
