About Dental Sealants
Since brushing and flossing are not designed to reach every tooth far in the back of the mouth, teeth sealants are an preventative way to proactively gain protection against decay and infection. Made with plastic that is thin and flexible, dental sealants are secured to the chewing surface of the molars and premolars. Once secured on the tooth, sealants create a barrier from plaque and bacteria from reaching the tooth. People who have dental sealants don't sense the sealants once in place. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Easton can help Columbus, OH patient's teeth to be safely guarded from bacteria, plaque, and decay.

"Several years ago, I had a health issue come up that required all my teeth to needing to be pulled. Dr. Wilson did a wonderful job of it. The whole staff was very supportive. I was not able to get dentures tight away. I have recently started the process to get my dentures. Once again Dr. T and his staff are very supportive and helpful.

What to Expect
Putting sealants on top of the teeth at DentalWorks - Easton is a quick and simple treatment that is done without any type of sedation. Before the sealants are placed into position, the patient's teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to make certain that tarter, plaque, and bacteria are not being sealed inside the tooth. Once this is done, the tooth will be lightly molded and shaped to where the sealant will go, then rinsed and dried. Once the tooth is ready, our dentists will place the sealant over the tooth and use a unique light to harden the sealant. Our dentists will test to confirm the sealant is hardened.
With proper care, including thorough oral care and bi-annual check ups at DentalWorks - Easton with our dentists, teeth sealants can last up to for years. Our dentists will check the wear of the sealants at every dental exam. Patients will be kept up to date as to whether they may need to be replaced. Patients should consistently brush their teeth twice a day, as well as guard them by not grating their teeth and limiting sticky candy. While sealants are considered for younger patients, some patients over 20 may get sealants if they worry about getting cavities.
Insurance providers usually cover the bill for dental sealants for younger patients, but some cover older patients as well. DentalWorks - Easton's insurance coordinators will check with the patient's insurance policy to get the exact coverage available. If the benefits plan does not cover costs for teeth sealants our dentists are happy to discuss acceptable payment options. Something to remember is that the cost of sealants is generally less costly than a filling or other dental treatment.
