Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces. Think of them as a safety net for your teeth that stick to your chewing surfaces. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars. This is especially important when it comes to your child’s dental health.

The majority of decay on back teeth starts in the grooves and pits of chewing surfaces, especially during the first few years after their eruption. Sealing these surfaces with composite resins prevents this kind of decay.

At our Cameron Park dentist office we understand your need for all the information on dental sealants and our fee structures before we talk treatment. We strive to answer all your questions on sealants and keep our dental fees within your budget. We offer an $63 x-ray, exam and cleaning special along with other discounts.

Sealants are one of the most effective methods of preventing decay on the surfaces where they are placed. Although it is still a possibility that decay may develop on surfaces in between teeth, sealants significantly reduce the overall chance of having cavities.
