Dental Sealants consists of a thin plastic coating designed to protect the bicuspids and molars. Dental sealants are applied on the chewing (occlusal) surface of the back teeth to help protect them from bacteria and acids that may lead to tooth decay. Sealants act as a preventative step to prevent teeth from cavities and tooth decay. Children's and teenager teeth are most susceptible to cavities.
Firstly, our dentist will clean the tooth surface to remove the food particles and plaque, after polishing the surface of the tooth, our dentist will isolate and dry the tooth. Dental sealants are applied to the dry surface of the tooth with a brush, a self-curing light is used to harden the sealant to the tooth surface. The sealant procedure is simple and painless, done in a single visit.
Children’s and adults can get benefited from dental sealants to prevent their chewing surface of the tooth from bacteria and decay.
