What is a Dental (Tooth) Sealant?
A sealant is a protective varnish that is placed in the deep grooves of your back teeth in order to protect them from bacteria harboring in there and causing decay. It is encouraged that all adults and children have their back teeth properly sealed. Adults are just as prone to tooth decay as children are, making this inexpensive procedure a great choice for preventing future and more expensive problems.
Most insurance companies will reimburse for sealants placed on permanent molars in patients who are under the age of 14. There is also a great chance that health savings accounts and flex-spending accounts will reimburse for this procedure. We will happily do a benefits check to see if your insurance will cover your expenses.
What is the Process of Applying Sealants?
The process of applying dental sealants is quick and comfortable. Our skilled team cleans and prepares your teeth before applying the sealant material, which then hardens to form a protective barrier against decay.
