What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are a thin, protective coating that can prevent tooth decay from occurring. These clear or white thin coatings are painted to the tooth enamel on the molars, providing durable protection against food and germs. Since dental sealants are very thin, you’re unlikely to feel them on the teeth. Dental sealants are a great option when it comes to preventive dental care as they provide immediate protection.

How long do sealants last on teeth?

As dental sealants are durable, they can last for up to ten years with the proper care. During this time, they can be replaced if needed or reapplied after being worn away during use to continue providing protection. Children and teenagers are great candidates for dental sealants. However, dental sealants for adults with minor decay in their molars can also benefit from this preventive measure.

Are sealants worth the money?

Dental sealants are worth the money. They protect the grooves of the teeth, which are hard to reach with only a toothbrush and floss. In some cases, dental sealants can be placed over areas with existing decay to prevent further decay and preserve the natural tooth. This durability and protection make dental sealants worth it. Dental sealants cost less than a filling but vary on how many teeth you would like the dental sealant placed.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
