What happens when you need new dental sealant? My dentist told me my sealant should last at least 5 years before it needs to be resealed, and it's been just over 4 since i got mine, so i'm starting to wonder about the resealing. How does the dentist remov
Your dentist can remove the old sealant by using air abrasion or a fine diamond bur. There are times when a sealant can be applied over the existing sealant.
I will visually inspect every sealant at each recall examination and touch up as necessary.
