Applying sealants is an easy process that requires no drilling. The teeth are cleaned and a special gel is applied to the tooth for several seconds. The gel is then rinsed off and the tooth is dried. The sealant is then placed in the grooves of the tooth and a special light is used to harden the sealant.
You can find more information about dental sealants on our Preventive Dental Services page. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about dental sealants!
