Cavity prevention in 4 simple steps

Cavity prevention in 4 simple steps

Protecting your teeth with a dental sealant is a surprisingly simple process. Here's how it works:

  1. First, we'll clean your tooth and dry it carefully.
  2. Next, we'll apply an acid solution to roughen the tooth surface so the sealant will bond more effectively.
  3. We'll then clean and rinse your tooth again before painting sealant onto its surface.
  4. We may apply a special curing light to help harden the sealant.
