Dental sealants, the thin coatings that deflect cavity-causing bacteria, can be an awesome investment: what could be better to invest in than your health? Multiple of our patients have asked us about how tooth sealants are installed. Here is some information for you if you have been thinking about the same thing.

Oral sealants are applied in a straightforward, discomfort-free service. To install the dental sealant, your dentist might clean your tooth in prepping for the application of the dental sealant gel. When the sealant is applied, it might take a few minutes to solidify and develop a tight bond onto your tooth. The dentist might then remove the excess gel, re-dry your pearly whites and strengthen the sealant with a blue light. Then they may do final checks to ensure that the gel has been applied and hardened successfully. Anyone can benefit from dental sealants, and if you’re considering them, then you should ask the team at Love Family Dentistry about dental sealants now.
