What are Sealants?

Dental sealants are a protective coating that fills in the back grooves of your teeth.  Typically, it seals your back molars and premolars where it is prone to bacteria, food particles, and higher levels of tooth decay. The coating is thin and plastic in material that acts as a barrier to external factors.

The Process

Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned before sealant application. The treated teeth are dried, and an acidic solution prepares your teeth for proper sealant placement. Your teeth are rinsed again and then your teeth will be filled with the sealant. It is hardened with ultraviolet light to speed up the process.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural mineral that is known to exclusively reduce cavity development. After we’ve examined your teeth, we will apply a fluoride gel or varnish to them. Then, your mouth will be rinsed with mouthwash in order to retain the fluoride in your mouth. We recommend not eating or drinking for up to an hour, so the treatment will be in maximum force!
