Our team will perform the application of sealants during one of your bi-yearly regular checkups. This process is typically done on new fresh teeth that have just come in on children and teens getting their permanent adult teeth and is used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. In some cases, the tooth structure has fine grooves or pits in it which accumulate plaque and are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. These will develop cavities over time, and you don’t want that. Our team will brush on a coating that seals the grooves and pits, making it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth healthy. The process of sealing your teeth takes about an hour.
