What do sealants involve?
The process of dental sealants involves several simple steps:
- Tooth Preparation: The dentist thoroughly cleans and dries the teeth to be sealed, typically focusing on the molars and premolars.
- Acid Etching: A mild acidic solution is applied to the tooth surface, creating a rough texture that helps the sealant bond securely.
- Rinse and Dry: The acid is rinsed off, and the tooth is dried to ensure proper adhesion of the sealant material.
- Sealant Application: The dentist carefully applies the liquid sealant onto the grooves and pits of the tooth, covering the vulnerable areas.
- Bonding and Curing: The sealant material is hardened using a specialized dental light, which facilitates bonding and creates a protective shield.
- Evaluation and Adjustments: The dentist checks the sealants for proper coverage and makes any necessary adjustments for an optimal fit.
- Final Check and Bite Assessment: The bite is checked to ensure that the sealants do not interfere with the natural alignment of the teeth.
- Completion: Once the sealants are in place and properly set, the process is complete, and the patient can resume their normal activities with added protection against tooth decay.
