A Dental sealant is a thin plastic coating painted on surfaces of teeth to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the deep grooves of the teeth which form a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. The tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque.
With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay. Some sealants even release fluoride to strengthen the teeth. Dental sealants are important for children because their oral hygiene may not be constant yet and they may not understand the importance of keeping their teeth clean.
Many insurance companies cover the cost of sealants for patients younger than 18. Check with your dental insurance carrier to determine if sealants are covered under your plan. If not, don’t worry, we have a loyalty plan and payment options to help you pay for the cost of dental services. Contact us today to get started on your free consultation for dental services.
