Dental Sealants – The Simple Procedure for Strong Decay Protection

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Did you know that getting dental sealants for your child is one of the quickest, easiest procedures that family dentistry practices offer? A pediatric dentist in Woodbridge is typically able to perform the whole procedure in a matter of minutes. Take a look at how easy it truly is to protect your child from cavities with dental sealants.

Step 1 – Teeth getting treated are cleaned

First, your pediatric dentist in Woodbridge will clean the entire surface of each tooth to ensure that tooth sealants adhere properly.

Step 2 – Teeth are prepared for the procedure

After teeth are cleaned and dried, an etching gel will be placed over the chewing surfaces of the teeth getting tooth sealants. This gel will dry in 60 seconds and then be washed away.

Step 3 – Dental sealants are applied

Then, your pediatric dentist in Woodbridge will apply the special liquid plastic gel that forms the tooth sealants over the grooves and fissures of the teeth being treated.

Step 4 – Tooth sealants are set

After tooth sealants have been applied, a special light is used to activate the sealing properties of the gel and encourages it to set. This process is called curing and it usually takes only one minute.

Step 5 – Sealants are checked for complete coverage

Once the dental sealants have set, your pediatric dentist in Woodbridge evaluates each tooth to make sure that the sealant completely covers every possible place where 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.
