About Dental Sealants
Indentations on the top of the molars typically accumulate more bacteria and plaque, meaning they are more susceptible to ending up with cavities. Dental sealants, a routine part of preventive dentistry, are used to protect the molars from dental disease caused by decay. These thin coatings are made of a transparent or milky-colored liquid that is brushed onto the tops of the back teeth. Dental sealants from Dallas Dental Concierge not only help stop tooth decay, but they may also lessen your family's need for tooth-colored fillings or other corrective care later on. Speak with cosmetic dentist Dr. Melisa Christian during your twice-yearly dental cleanings at our Dallas, TX office to determine if you or your child could benefit from sealants.
HOW ARE THEY DONE?
First, Dr. Christian will need to examine the teeth to determine if dental sealants will be the proper option for you and your child. To prepare the teeth for sealants, a member of our staff will clean the enamel to get rid of any buildup, food debris, and bacteria from the chewing surfaces. The enamel is then dried, and a fine coat of sealant liquid will be painted evenly into the rifts with a tiny brush. A curing light is then positioned over the tooth, and this will solidify the sealant casting within roughly 10 – 20 seconds. After the sealants are applied, our professionals will evaluate your chewing surfaces for alignment and provide you with instructions on how to best take care of your dental sealants.
