1. Help Prevent Cavities
What’s the last thing every patient wants to hear at their dentist appointment? “You have a cavity!” Once your dentist makes this discovery, additional treatments are almost always necessary. However, you can avoid cavity fillings and crowns using dental sealants! Since they prevent cavities, they also prevent long-term damage and unwanted dentist appointments.
We use our teeth to speak, drink, and chow down on all kinds of delicious food. Thankfully, dental sealants are highly durable! Once they dry, you do not have to excessively worry about damaging them while you eat and drink your favorite snacks because dental sealants will last for years if you take care of them properly.
3. Easy and Painless Application
You don’t have to worry about an extensive, difficult appointment if your child is ready for dental sealants. In fact, the application process will feel like a breeze! After we complete their regular cleaning and checkup, our team will brush and cure the dental sealants onto your child’s teeth. It is a painless treatment and will take less than fifteen minutes!
4. Insurance Coverage
While this can vary depending on your dental insurance, most major insurers cover children’s dental sealants. Since it is a preventative treatment, they commonly cover all, or a significant portion, of the associated cost. However, we always recommend checking with your insurance company first to explore your options and see their specific guidelines!
