Protecting Your Teeth During Orthodontic Treatment

Why Do You Need To Protect Your Teeth During Orthodontics?

Have you ever seen someone with a straight, post-braces smile, who also has distracting white spots that mar the beautiful result? It’s called decalcification, and it can result from acids and plaque sitting on teeth too long during orthodontic treatment. Here at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry we know how important your smile is and so we have something that helps with decalcification.

How Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry helps: Opal Seal Protects Teeth From Decalcification

Opal Seal is a sealant and primer in one. It helps us prime your teeth for brackets to keep them firmly in place. At the same time, it acts as a seal to protect your teeth from decalcification and decay. Opal Seal also reinforces your enamel by releasing fluoride. It lasts several months and can be re-applied when necessary.

Not only is Opal Seal good for patients of all ages, here are some of the other reasons why we use Opal Seal:

  • Application is totally pain-free.
  • Completely discreet protection and invisible to the naked eye.
  • Non yellowing and stain resistant.
  • The drying agent seeks out moisture and draws resin in, ensuring superior bonding and fluoride uptake.
  • Fluorescent properties make reapplication and removal easy and convenient.
  • When combined with proper oral hygiene, Opal Seal helps you keep a bright and healthy smile.

Opal Seal brings you one step closer to your dream smile! Talk to us about Opal Seal. When the time comes to remove your braces, Opal Seal can help ensure sparkling, beautiful results.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
