Dental Sealants

Sealants prevent cavities from forming in the grooves of teeth which is one of the main areas cavities start.

The best time for sealants is when the teeth first erupt. Children’s Dental Care

Step 1. When a sealant is performed on a tooth we start by isolating the tooth. Dental Sealants 0- Initial

 

Step 2. Once the tooth is dried it is cleaned with a blue etch

to make the sealant material adhere to the tooth.

Step 3. Thirty seconds go by and then the blue etch is rinsed off.

Next the sealant is placed in a thin layer in the grooves of the tooth.

into areas that the toothbrush will not reach.
