Dental sealants can be a very important detail in keeping the teeth free of cavities and decay-causing bacteria. Sealants are plastic coatings placed on the permanent back teeth (the molars and premolars) to help protect them from decay. Many people associate dental sealants with children and adolescents, however dental sealants are available for adult patients who wish to protect their teeth and promote optimal oral health. The dedicated staff at Family & Cosmetic Dental Care is happy to apply sealants to any of his patients who wish for them. Not all insurance companies cover the cost of sealants, yet they can still be a very beneficial investment toward the lifetime of your teeth.
Dental sealants were created to keep germs and particles out of the grooves that are often present in the back molars. Some people have deeper grooves in their teeth than others, and these deep grooves can be difficult to fully clean by brushing. Sealants act as a shield for the tooth by protecting the teeth with a plastic coated surface that does not allow for food and bacteria to get trapped. Family & Cosmetic Dental Care is dedicated to the health of all of our patients’ teeth. Young and old, teeth were designed to last a lifetime. Dental sealants are an important component of a comprehensive preventative dental care plan for both children and adults.
We are happy to serve all of our patients in a warm and relaxing environment. We strive to promote optimal oral health in everyone who walks into our office. A healthy smile is a beautiful smile, and sealants can help to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and strong. Call the Family & Cosmetic Dental Care office today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving you and your family with our highest quality dental care.
