The Importance of Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is one of the easiest ways to upkeep great oral health and prevent more serious dental issues from arising. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone schedule two dental exams and cleanings per year to ensure their smile is in tip-top shape. Checkups also allow our team to catch any dental issues while they’re still small. If you’re overdue for a dental checkup, please contact our office!Learn More
What Are Dental Sealants?
Molars have natural grooves and crevices on the chewing surfaces. While it’s completely normal to have them, they may become breeding grounds for bacteria and decay. Dental sealants are used to keep your teeth healthy and strong. They’re thin, long-lasting plastic coatings that are painted over the chewing surfaces of molars to keep cavities at bay. Sealants provide a protective shield over your back molars which are more susceptible to cavities. Getting dental sealants is a quick, easy process with long-term benefits!
Are Dental Sealants Covered By Insurance?
Preventive dentistry, including dental sealants, is usually covered by dental insurance. However, coverage may vary from provider to provider. If you’re wondering if your insurance covers dental sealants, please feel free to contact our office and one of our financial coordinators can look into it for you. If sealants aren’t covered, don’t worry. We proudly offer a variety of payment options to help you fit the care you need into your budget.Schedule Your Appointment
