Dental sealants are used for both baby and adult teeth. Candidates can be:
- Children who still have their baby teeth
- Pre-teens and teens who are getting their adult teeth
- Adults who want to protect their teeth
When you request sealants for yourself or your child, your teeth will first be examined for decay and any cavities addressed. Next, the surfaces to be treated will be cleaned and prepared, using a mildly acidic compound to etch the surface so that the sealant will be able to attach firmly. After another round of rinsing and drying, the liquid sealant is painted onto the teeth, then hardened with a curing light. The entire process generally takes between five and forty-five minutes, depending on the number of teeth to be sealed.
