Dental sealants are a thin, tooth-colored coating covering the chewing surface of your teeth to eliminate pits and grooves that can potentially trap the plaque and bacteria that cause tooth decay.
Your dentist in Greeley typically recommends dental sealants for children, who generally lack the dexterity to care for their teeth; however, tooth sealants could also benefit anybody who wants to get ahead of dental decay before it occurs. We've found that patients with sealants often have less tooth decay than those who don't have them.
Dental sealants are a non-invasive procedure, which we can usually complete in one visit to our dental office. Many insurance companies cover a portion of the cost of dental sealants for children, and we can often incorporate the procedure into their six-month cleaning and checkup for your convenience.
If you are an adult who is prone to tooth decay and cavities, it can be frustrating feeling like you need a filling or other dental work every time you visit the dentist. The good news is that dental sealants can help, and we encourage you to talk with Dr. Bagley to see if dental sealants might benefit you.
