What To Expect During A Sealant Procedure

Placing dental sealants is doesn’t require drilling or numbing medications.

  • Tooth preparation – the hygienist will polish the surface of the tooth. Then they will isolate and dry the tooth before etching the surface.
  • Sealant application – the hygienist will apply the dental sealant material to the tooth. A self-curing light will be used to bond the sealant to the tooth.
  • Evaluation – finally, the dental hygienist and dentist will evaluate the dental sealant. Once it has hardened you can chew on the tooth again.
