Benefits of Dental Sealants

Sealants offer protective coverage to keep plaque and food from building up in hard to reach places in your mouth. Sealing pits and fissures helps prevent more serious oral health issues in the future.

Dental Sealants Procedure

Dental Sealants Procedure Sealants are only possible when the tooth is clean and dry. We will use a suction tool to keep your mouth dry enough for the process. Adding sealants is completely pain-free and quick. We will apply an acidic gel to the intended tooth to prepare the tooth surface for bonding. The gel will be rinsed away, and the tooth will now have the proper grit to hold the sealant. The sealant will be implemented and cured with a blue light. Sealants are never a replacement for brushing and flossing, so continue your at-home regimen with diligence.
