Protecting Your Smile 
Dr. Poggio is proud to announce a revolutionary new orthodontic primer from Opal Orthodontics; it does the double duty of keeping your brackets securely in place and improving your enamel health.        
Just as its name implies, Opal Seal acts as a “seal”, or barrier between your enamel and plaque by completely covering the tooth surface.
  Opal Seal provides fluoride to your teeth.  Fluoride is an essential mineral for preserving healthy enamel, which is why it’s in many water sources and almost all toothpastes.
Opal Seal enhances bond strength and improves your overall enamel health to ensure your teeth are being protected throughout your entire orthodontic treatment. 
  • Does Opal Seal hurt?

    No, Opal Seal does not hurt. You might be able to feel it with your tongue, but most likely you won't even notice it's there.
  • Can you see Opal Seal?

    Opal Seal is virtually invisible. Neither you nor anyone else will likely be able to see it with the naked eye. In fact, your orthodontist will use a special UV black light to detect it on your teeth.
  • How long does Opal Seal last?

    Opal Seal generally lasts several months. Your orthodontist may reapply it throughout treatment if necessary.
  • Do I still have to brush and floss with Opal Seal?

    Of course! Opal Seal alone cannot protect your teeth. But when combined with proper oral hygiene, it can help your smile stay bright and healthy.
  • Does Opal Seal contain BPA?

    BPA, or Bisphenol-A, is a potentially harmful chemical used in some plastic bottles, cans, home electronics, and even dental products. However, Opal Seal never has and never will contain BPA.
  • Is Opal Seal just for kids?

    No, Opal Seal is not just for kids. It can benefit anyone with braces—from pre-teens to adults.
