Dental Sealants Can Help Prevent Tooth Decay

Dental sealants are one of the elements of preventative dentistry that the Aesthetic Family Dentistry office here in Baytown, TX sees great results with. Dr. Dean Hutto and his dental health team leverage dental sealants for a variety of patients, particularly for those with deeper grooves in their teeth. Children, in particular, can benefit from dental sealants as they are recognized by the American Dental Association as a great method of preventing cavities. Many adult patients at our dental office also benefit from dental sealants.

What are Dental Sealants?

We use a thin, clear, and completely safe tooth coating to provide a barrier on the surface of your teeth. Dental sealants are often used on molars to protect those teeth from food particles, which could be difficult to reach through brushing. The sealant is particularly helpful for kids who are still developing their brushing habits.

Many of our patients in Baytown wonder how long dental sealants last, how much they cost, and whether or not the process of applying dental sealant is long and /or uncomfortable. This is a painless process that can be done in a single appointment. After applying the sealant solution we use a light that cures it. It’s an inexpensive option that can last up to a decade and prevent a plethora of dental problems. Some insurance plans do cover the cost of sealants and if you’d like a quote and consultation, feel free to contact our office. If you are not sure whether or not your insurance plan will cover this, we can provide you with a quote that you can submit so that you can determine whether or not your plan covers it.
