Dental Sealants – Simple, Quick and Lasting
Dental Sealants are a simple procedure to prevent cavities and tooth decay in children’s teeth.
WHY DENTAL SEALANTS?
Comfort Dental recommends sealants as preventive dental care for children because the small depressions in their teeth can make them difficult to properly clean through brushing alone.
Sealants provide protection for these small depressions and grooves by keeping plaque from forming in the small crevices.
Adults can also be good candidates for dental sealants.
SEALANTS ONLY TAKE A QUICK OFFICE VISIT
After the teeth are properly cleaned and prepped, we paint the sealing solution directly onto the tooth surfaces and then harden it with a curing light.
Once the sealant is hardened we send you on your way—you don’t even have to wait to eat and drink.
After your sealants have been applied Dr. Brucken or Dr. Stubbs will keep tabs on them through routine dental checkups to ensure that they remain in good condition.
LASTING & ECONOMICAL
The price of dental sealants can often be covered by dental insurance and are a fraction of the cost of having a cavity filled. In addition, sealants can last up to 10 years—making an application from childhood last well into adulthood.
Talk to Dr. Brucken or Dr. Stubbs to see if dental sealants are right for you or your children. Make sure to let us know if you have any additional questions about this or any other dental topic.
