Applying sealants

Sealants are applied during a single visit. The procedure is quick and easy, only taking a couple of minutes per tooth. The first step is to clean and dry any tooth that is going to be sealed. The tooth is kept dry during the procedure using a cotton swab. Next, an etching solution is used to roughen the surface of the tooth so the sealant coating can easily bond with it. Once the surface is adequately roughened, the solution is rinsed off, and the tooth is dried once again. Finally, the sealant is painted onto the surface of the tooth and allowed to dry. The dentist will ensure that the grooves of the tooth have been properly sealed.
