Dental Sealants in Crown Point, IN

Tooth decay touches the lives of millions of children and adults all over the world. Fortunately, it’s both treatable and preventable with good dental care. Many children and some adults can benefit from dental sealants, which keep plaque away from tooth enamel and greatly reduce the risk of dental decay and cavities.

How Can Dental Sealants Help?

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that your dentist brushes over your teeth or your child’s teeth to create a strong barrier between plaque acids and tooth surfaces. The molars or back teeth are most vulnerable to decay because of their heavy use, their hard-to-reach positions and the natural crevices and pits in their chewing surfaces. For these reasons, they’re the teeth most often treated with dental sealants.

Brief Dental Sealant Procedure Guide

The tooth sealant procedure is simple and fast, and it doesn’t cause pain or discomfort. Here is a quick overview of the basic steps used in applying dental sealants.

  1. To prepare your teeth for a dental sealant, your dentist will clean them and treat them with a weak acid solution to roughen up the chewing surfaces. The abrasive surface helps dental sealants to form a stronger bond.
  2. After rinsing and drying your teeth, your dentist will brush a thin layer of  dental sealant over each tooth.
  3. Some dental sealants are cured with a special light that can be inserted into your mouth. The curing process is painless and safe.

Dental Sealants Cost: Are Sealants Affordable?

For most people, the cost of dental sealants is minimal when compared to the cost of tooth restoration. Your overall tooth sealant cost will depend on how many teeth require treatment and what type of product is used. If you have dental insurance, it may cover the cost of the treatment. You can find out more about the cost of getting affordable dental sealants in Crown Point by contacting our office.

Effective Dental Sealants for Adults

Although most people who get tooth sealants are children, a tooth sealant is also valuable for preventing cavities in adults. They’re especially helpful for high-risk adults such as those who have a strong family history of tooth decay or gum recession or those who take medications that alter their body’s ability to produce enough saliva.

Plastic Sealants on Kids’ Teeth

Dental sealants for kids’ teeth are most often applied to the first and second molars soon after they erupt. Early treatment ensures the best protection. Our dentists provide treatment with dental sealants for children and adults of all ages.

Are Dental Sealants Safe for My Kids?
