What Are Dental Sealants?
Crevices in the surface of the back teeth tend to hold onto more bacteria and plaque, meaning they are more at risk for getting cavities. Dental sealants, a preventive measure, help safeguard teeth from dental disease caused by decay. These thin protective barriers are created from a transparent or tooth-colored material that is brushed onto the tops of the back teeth. Dental sealants offered at the Center for Dentofacial Aesthetics not only stop tooth decay, but they may also decrease your family's need for dental fillings or other corrective procedures in the future. Talk to Dr. Harshit Aggarwal or Dr. Leonel Perez during your routine dental appointments at our Annandale, VA facility to discover if you or your child could benefit from dental sealants.
What is the Sealant Process?
To begin, we will have to look at the teeth to determine if dental sealants are an ideal option for you or your family. To get your mouth ready for dental sealants, we will clean the teeth to eradicate any buildup, food debris, and bacteria from the crevices. The teeth will be dried, and a fine sheet of sealant material will be painted precisely into the rifts using a tiny brush. A dental curing light is then set on top of the tooth to solidify the sealant casting in approximately 10 – 20 seconds. As soon as the dental sealants are applied, they will help protect the enamel and create a smoother exterior that is easier to keep clean.
