Opal® Seal is a protective sealant we use to prepare your teeth before we put your braces on. The Opal Seal orthodontic primer works by doing some of the following:
- It helps to create a seal between your teeth and the harmful plaque bacteria that contribute to tooth decay. This barrier is especially effective because teeth are harder to clean during orthodontic treatment.
- It releases the fluoride mineral that strengthens and rebuilds enamel tissues. Fluoride is found in food, water, and toothpaste as well as this primer.
The Opal Seal primer is virtually invisible, so no one will be able to see it on your smile. It can last for several months and we can reapply it as needed.
In addition, Opal Seal can benefit both children and adults. Please call our office today if you want to learn more about the benefits of our Opal Seal protective sealant.
