Dental Sealants

A sealant is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria like plaque and acids. The sealants that we make are very easy to apply.

The Procedure

The whole procedure only lasts a few minutes. Before the actual sealing, a cleaning will be performed and the teeth will be prepared to receive the sealant. When your tooth has been prepared and ready, the doctor will place the sealant to your tooth as if he were painting them on. It will bond directly to your tooth.

The Results

The surface of the tooth will be protected and the sealant should be able to handle any regular chewing pressure. It’s still important to attend regular visits so the doctor can check and evaluate your sealant, and reapply them if necessary.
