What are Dental Sealants?
Indentations on the chewing surfaces of the molars usually hold onto more food particles and buildup, meaning they are more susceptible to developing cavities. Dental sealants, a routine part of preventive dentistry, are applied to defend the teeth from damage caused by decay. These thin defensive sealants are made of an invisible or milky-colored liquid that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. When bonded, they can defend the enamel and provide a more even exterior that is easier to clean. Dental sealants at Fort Loramie Dental Center not only prevent cavities but could also lessen your child's need for fillings or other restorative treatments in the future. Talk to Dr. Christopher Ashby during your biannual dental appointments at our Fort Loramie, OH facility to decide if you or your child could benefit from sealants.
What Is the Sealant Process?
Before beginning, Dr. Ashby will examine the teeth to determine if dental sealants would be the correct service for you or your child. To prepare your mouth for sealants, the teeth are polished to get rid of any tartar, food particles, and germs from the chewing surfaces. The teeth will be dried, and a small coat of sealant liquid will be applied evenly into the crevices with a small brush. An advanced curing light will be positioned on top of the tooth; this will ossify the sealant casting in about 10 – 20 seconds. When every sealant is set, our team will evaluate your jaws for alignment and provide instructions on efficiently caring for your sealants.
