If you’re an adult, there’s a good chance you received at least a few dental sealants when you were younger. And if you’re a child or teenager, there’s an even better chance that you have relatively new dental sealants in your mouth right now!

Dental sealants help “seal” up vulnerable crevices in teeth and protect against cavities and tooth decay. In this short blog post, we briefly highlight three great benefits of dental sealants and how they provide an extra layer of armor against plaque and tartar:

#1: Affordability

The exact cost of dental sealants depends on factors such as how many teeth you’re applying them to and whether you have dental insurance. Still, one principle is true no matter their price tag: it’s cheaper to protect your teeth now and invest in affordable, preventive treatments than it is to pay for restorative dentistry down the road. 

Because dental sealants usually only cost an average of $40 or $50 per tooth, they’re significantly less expensive than the price of dental fillings, crowns for teeth, or dental implants.

#2 Appearance

Dental sealants are either clear or white, which means after our Glenmont dentist applies them to your teeth, you won’t even know they’re there! We most commonly recommend dental sealants for molars and teeth in the back of the mouth anyway, so you don’t have to worry about any unwanted dental material messing up your beautiful smile. 

#3 Convenience and Ease

Unlike some restorative dental treatments that require sedation, needles, and a recovery period after, dental sealants are non-invasive and completely painless! With our seamless application method, getting dental sealants in Glenmont, NY is easy and convenient.
