What is a sealant?
A sealant is an excellent way to protect teeth from bacteria and debris intrusion and build-up. Our teeth have deep grooves and pits that can easily attract bacteria and debris. To avoid this build-up, sealants are often used.
Sealants can last for several years and are essentially a thin coating layer that is applied over the teeth for protection. They create a smooth, clean surface that is easy to keep clean.
What is the procedure to apply a sealant?
When we apply sealants, we must first clean the tooth. Then, we will mark the tooth with an abrasive surface. Next, we will apply the sealant. Finally, we will shine a warm light on to the sealant in order to dry it quickly.
Your sealant should last five to ten years before needing to be re-applied. If you are curious about sealant treatment options or the way in which sealant is applied, please contact our Glendale dental office.
