Dental sealants, the thin coatings that ward off cavity-forming bacteria, can be a good investment. What could be better to invest in than your health? Lots of our patients have asked us about how tooth sealants are applied. Here is some data for you if you have been wondering the same thing.

Dental sealants are applied in a relatively simple, discomfort-free service. To install the oral sealant, your dentist might clean your tooth in preparation for the application of the oral sealant gel. When the sealant is placed, it may take a few minutes to solidify and form a strong bond onto your tooth. The dentist might then remove the surplus gel, re-dry your teeth and reinforce the sealant with a blue light. Then they may do checks to make sure that the gel has been applied and hardened successfully. Anyone at any age can be helped by dental sealants, and if you’re considering them, then you should ask the staff at Adaptive Dental Associates about dental sealants now.
