Post-Operative Instructions for Dental Sealants

Please follow these instructions following the placement of your child’s dental sealants.

  1. Once sealants are light cured, your child may resume normal eating and drinking.
  2. The sealants placed today are guaranteed by this office for 2 years if your child attends his/ her check-up and cleaning appointments every 6 months.
  3. Your child should avoid hard candies and chewing ice to prevent fractures of his/ her sealants.
  4. Your child should avoid sticky candies that could pull out his/ her sealants.
  5. Sealants do not prevent all decay.  Flossing is still needed to protect the sides of your child’s teeth.
