Are you concerned about the state of your teeth? Sealants are a thin coating that can help protect against cavities for years to come.
What to Expect When You Get Sealants
If you’re a good candidate for sealants, there’s absolutely nothing to be worried about. No drills are required. We’ll simply need to perform a regular cleaning, then apply the sealants.
The process of applying sealant should take no more than 30 minutes for your whole mouth. Our curing light dries the sealant within 60 seconds, which means you also don’t have to worry about waiting for the sealant to dry.
Here are some facts to keep in mind before choosing to get this procedure:
· While they can last for up to nine years, we recommend getting sealants applied every two to four years. This helps maximize their effectiveness.
· Sealants don’t have any special dietary restrictions. That said, we recommend avoiding ice chewing, which is always bad for teeth.
· While sealants can help protect against cavities, you still need to brush and floss. Sealants are supplementary, they’re not a replacement for adequate home care.
