The sealant procedure includes placing a suction which controls moisture in the mouth. The tooth is cleaned with a blue gel. The gel is rinsed off and then the BPA-free sealant is placed into the grooves of the tooth. A blue light is placed on the tooth for 3 seconds to harden and complete the sealant procedure.
Sealants are provided with a 3-year guarantee. As long as you bring your child regularly for their cleaning and exam appointments, any sealants which may have fractures or fallen off will be replaced at no charge.
