What Are Dental Sealants?
Why Do Kids Need Dental Sealants?
The Procedure For Dental Sealants
At first, the teeth on which the sealant has to be applied are thoroughly cleaned and dried up.
An absorbent is kept on the tooth to absorb saliva and the wetness from the previous step.
Dilute acid will be applied to the surface of the tooth to roughen it. This is necessary since the dental sealant would best bond on a rough surface.
After rinsing and drying the tooth further, the dental sealant will be applied to the tooth. A curing light may also be used to harden the sealant faster.
