Oral sealants, the thin coatings that protect against cavity-causing bacteria, can be a great investment: what better to invest in than your health? Lots of our patients have asked us about how tooth sealants are installed. Here is a little bit of info for you if you have been thinking about the same thing.

Oral sealants are installed in a relatively straightforward, pain-free service. To install the dental sealant, your dentist might clean your tooth in prep for the application of the dental sealant gel. When the gel is placed, it might take a few minutes to solidify and create a tough bond onto your tooth. The dentist may then get rid of the surplus gel, re-dry your pearly whites and strengthen the sealant with a blue light. Then they may do final checks to ensure that the gel has been applied and hardened successfully. Anyone at any age can be helped by oral sealants, and if you’re thinking about them, then you should ask the team at San Diego Dentistry Studio about oral sealants today.
