Placing dental sealants is typically a quick, simple, and painless process. The procedure is also safe, and does not require anesthetics of any kind. First, a dental hygienist will remove any plaque and food debris that may be stuck in the grooves of the teeth. Once the teeth are clean and polished, the dental sealant material will be applied to the surface of the teeth with a brush. The sealant material is then bonded to the teeth using a special light. Once the sealant has hardened, it transforms into a sturdy, plastic coating, and the teeth can be used to chew once again.
The recovery process for the dental sealant procedure is virtually nonexistent. Patients can use their teeth as they normally would immediately after the sealant is applied and hardened. After leaving the dental office, patients are advised to care for their teeth with a standard oral hygiene regimen. Daily brushing and flossing, along with a healthy diet will help prolong the life of the sealant. Regular checkups at GIO Dental will also help to keep the sealants at their best. With proper care, the dental sealant can last up to ten years.
