El Cajon Children's Dentist - Tooth Sealants

  • What are dental sealants?
    Sealants are thin, plastic coatings painted on the chewing surfaces of your child's teeth. The application of sealants is a simple and painless process and can be done in one office visit with Dr. Olen or Dr. Maurer. Sealants are painted on as a liquid and quickly harden to form a shield over the tooth. Sealants are clear or tinted. Tinted sealants are easier to see.

    Sealants are usually applied to the back teeth to help protect the grooves and pits of these teeth that can be hard to clean and are prone to developing cavities. Early application of a sealant by your El Cajon children's dentist can protect your child throughout the most cavity-prone years and lay the foundation for a lifetime of dental health and a beautiful smile.

  • How long do sealants last?
    Sealants can last up to 10 years. But they need to be checked at regular dental check-ups to make sure they are not chipped or worn away. The dentist can repair sealants by adding more sealant material.

  • How much do sealants cost?
    Sealing one tooth usually costs less than filling one tooth. Having sealants put on healthy teeth now saves you money in the long run by avoiding fillings, crowns, or caps used to fix decayed teeth.

    But the most important reason for getting sealants is to avoid tooth decay. Healthy teeth can last a lifetime!
  • Does dental insurance pay for sealants? Many insurance companies pay for sealants. Check with your company for details.
