Discover How Fast and Easy it is to Get Dental Sealants

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Getting your child dental sealants is one of the quickest and simplest procedures offered in family dentistry clinics. Believe it or not, your pediatric dentist in Pikesville can apply them in just a few minutes. Check out how little is involved in this protective dental procedure.

  1. Cleaning the Teeth Being Treated

Your pediatric dentist in Pikesville will first rinse, clean, and dry the surfaces of each of the teeth receiving tooth sealants to make sure that the sealant adheres properly.

  1. Preparing the Teeth

After cleaning the teeth, a special tooth etching gel is brushed over the chewing surfaces of the teeth awaiting tooth sealants. After 60 seconds, the gel gets rinsed away.

  1. Applying the Dental Sealants

Next, your pediatric dentist in Pikesville brushes the liquid plastic gel that forms the dental sealant directly onto the teeth, making sure that it fills the deep crevices and crannies.

  1. Setting the Sealants

Then, a very strong curing light is shined on the dental sealants to activate the plastic gel and make it set. This process is called curing and it usually takes only one minute.

  1. Checking for Complete Protection

Once the dental sealants have set, your pediatric dentist in Pikesville evaluates each tooth to make sure that the sealant completely covers every possible place that decay could get trapped. After all of your child’s teeth have been checked, they can leave the family dentistry clinic with advanced decay protection.
