The application of sealants prevents the food you eat and the beverages you drink from collecting and turning into tooth decay.
Sealants are quick, painless and easily applied to the back teeth in your mouth, which are full of tiny grooves and pits where decay grows. These teeth can be difficult to keep clean, especially for children and even some adults. Sealants lock out decay and can save you money because these teeth probably won’t ever need to be filled. Sealants can be applied at the same time as your hygiene appointment and can be done is less than 30 minutes here in our office.
And sealants aren’t just for children. Sealants are covered by some insurance companies for adults too. Work with your insurance company to see if sealants are covered under your plan. If they’re not, sealants are cost effective and will save money in the long run from filling and saving decayed teeth.
