Do I need dental sealants?
Often, dental sealants are a strong preventative measure for anyone, children or adults. Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent cavities, which when left untreated, can lead to advanced tooth decay or even full-body infections. If your teeth are more prone to cavities than normal, sealants may be recommended.
How are sealants applied?
Dental sealants are applied at the end of a dental appointment. Your dentist will begin by drying off the teeth slightly and applying a pre-gel. Then, the sealant will be brushed on with a small brush and will take a few minutes to set.
