Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner may recommend dental sealants. A sealant is a thin resin material that is painted over the molars and premolars to seal out plaque and debris. This preventative non-invasive procedure is usually performed on children and teenagers. Sealants can be placed on any posterior non-restored tooth to prevent future decay and is highly recommended.
When placing dental sealants, our dentist or hygienist will first clean and dry each of the back teeth thoroughly. This will allow for an ideal bonding process. Finally, the dental sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it is light cured. The bite is then checked to make sure it is comfortable once it is set.
