FAQ

Frequently Ask Questions

Our patients have lots of questions about tooth sealants in Paradise Valley.  Take a look at our FAQ or send us a message & we will get you an answer as soon as we can.

A tooth sealant is a thin, plastic coating placed on the surface of teeth as a preventative measure to protect them from decay and cavities. The sealant acts as a barrier, filling in the tiny grooves and crevices that are hard to clean adequately with a toothbrush, making it more difficult for plaque and bacteria to accumulate. Tooth sealants are most commonly applied to molars and premolars, which have deep pits and fissures that are especially vulnerable to decay.

Tooth sealants typically last for several years with proper care and regular check-ups. However, it is important to be mindful of any wear or damage to your tooth sealant and contact your dentist if you notice any changes. A sealant can be reapplied if needed.

Tooth sealants are recommended for children between the ages of 6-14, but adults can also benefit from them as well! It is important for individuals who may be prone to cavities or have difficulty keeping their back teeth clean due to deep pits or grooves in their molars/premolars to consider getting tooth sealants applied as an additional layer of protection against decay.

Generally speaking, there are no known health risks associated with getting a tooth sealant applied. It's best practice always to speak with your dentist about any possible risks before having work done on your teeth! 

. Prior preparation may be necessary depending on how severe the grooves and pits are in your molars/premolars; this could include cleaning out debris from those areas and applying an etching solution (which generally consists of phosphoric acid etch) so that the adhesive used will bond better with your enamel when sealing your teeth. Your dentist will likely discuss all these details before going ahead with treatment for maximum comfort during application!

After having your teeth sealed, it’s important not only to continue practicing good oral hygiene habits such as brushing twice a day, but also flossing regularly – this will help keep plaque away from areas where the tooth seals have been placed! Additionally, scheduling regular check-ups with your dentist so they can make sure everything looks good is also key in keeping up with proper care over time! 

The cost of having your teeth sealed is usually minimal, typically between $30-$60 per tooth. Some insurance companies may cover part or all of this cost if you meet certain criteria! It’s best practice always to consult with your dental provider about what costs you might expect before committing to having this procedure done so you can make an informed decision about whether or not it’s right for you!
