Looking for ways to protect what’s important to you—your health, your family, your home—can keep them safe and prevent issues in the long run. One of the best ways to protect your child’s teeth from damaging tooth decay is by using fissure sealants. Talk to your dentist about this procedure and read on to learn more information about the way these sealants work as well as how much fissure dental sealants cost.
The cost of a fissure sealant will depend on several factors, such as:
Although most insurance companies cover the cost of sealants, some of them have limitations.
When it comes to your children’s health, prevention is the best thing you can do. This is especially true when it comes to oral health. Using a fissure sealant fights tooth decay in children and teenagers, and it may be what your child needs.
Schedule an appointment with your local kid-friendly Kool Smiles dentist or call us today to find out if your child needs fissure dental sealants.
Fissure sealants are coatings of thin plastic that are applied to the grooves of the back teeth. This coating protect teeth from germs and food particle, therefore, preventing cavities and tooth decay.
First, the dentist will clean the molar, then he or she places a special gel on the surface of the tooth only for a few seconds. Then, the dentist will wash and dry the tooth. After, the dentist applies the sealant.
Some dentists may use a light to help the sealant dry faster. After about a minute, the sealant forms a protective shield.
Remember, it’s best if your child’s dentist applies the sealant soon after the molar has pushed through. That way it will be protected right away.
