In order to have fully-functioning oral cavity, your back molars need to be strong and reliable. However, it might be difficult to take complete care of your molars and give them the full cleaning the need.
We understand that deeply cleaning your molars and the surrounding areas can be difficult and hard to reach, which is why we provide dental sealants in Foster City, California. These products are thin, plastic coatings that are painted over the surfaces of your molars to protect them from decay, bacteria, and infection, ultimately keeping them healthy, strong, and dependable.
The process of painting the sealants onto the teeth is a quick and easy system. First, Dr. Stephen Henry thoroughly cleans the tooth that is receiving the sealant. Once the tooth is cleaned and dried, an acid solution is applied to the tooth to roughen the surface; this will help the sealant completely bond to the tooth. Next, the tooth is rinsed and dried. To finish the process, the sealant is painted onto the tooth and our dentist will use a special light to harden the material.
