Unfortunately, the molars at the back of your mouth form various pits and grooves upon which bacteria can grow and develop. Given enough time, the bacteria will cause portions of the teeth to decay, which can lead to root canals or the need for implants.
Since this issue is most prominent in children, we’d like to examine your child’s teeth at least twice annually to prevent expensive and painful procedures. To care for this situation proactively, we apply sealants to the grooves or pits in the teeth. These sealants form a barrier that prevents the bacteria from growing in areas of the dentin or enamel that are difficult to keep clean.
Please provide us with your family dental insurance information so that we can determine if your plan covers sealants. Whether they are covered or not, we recommend bringing your child to our offices twice a year to keep their smile healthy. These sealants feature every benefit you can imagine for the child’s teeth, which includes less pain and a cleaner, more consistent surface area.
Lastly, the benefits of sealants are not just for children. Please ask our team during your examination if sealants are a potential solution to your oral health woes. We are ambitious about saving you money whenever possible, and this case is one where the savings and benefits go hand in hand.
Please call us today for more information or to schedule an appointment at 801-288-1818. Sealants can be applied during a checkup or cleaning, and they take less than 30 minutes to complete.
