Opal Seal for orthodontic Patients
Dr. Alison is now able to provide a new and exciting product to benefit her orthodontic patients during treatment. This product is called Opal Seal. This cutting-edge product functions in similar ways to a sealant that a dentist may apply. Opal seal is applied to the front of the teeth before braces are placed to provide a protective barrier against decalcification or white spots.
Opal seal works by delivering a constant, safe, low dose of fluoride to the enamel surface that helps prevent decalcification and subsequent white spots. Opal seal is invisible, non-yellowing, and resists staining. Dr. Alison is excited about using because Opal Seal because it can add a little extra protection to the patient’s teeth without changing the appearance of the teeth!
Patients will still need to get their regular six month cleaning with their dentist. Proper oral hygeine is still essential to have the best result possible for the patient! A consistent routine of brushing and flossing is essential to preserving health enamel.
