Post-Op Instructions Following a Cleaning with Fluoride Treatment

We apply your child’s fluoride treatment in a varnish form. There is no need to wait to eat or drink (as in the past)! Simply refrain from brushing for a few hours after treatment.

Post-Op Instructions Following Sealant Placement

Your child may notice that the tooth feels different because of the new sealant. The teeth and bite will feel normal again in a couple of days. Your child should avoid sticky, crunchy, or hard foods for 24 hours following the placement of the sealant.
