About Dental Sealants
Since toothbrushes can't always reach every nook and cranny of the mouth, sealants are an easy way to increase protection against cavities, decay, and bacteria. Manufactured with flexible plastic, dental sealants are applied to the occlusal surface of the upper and lower back teeth. Once in position, sealants prevent food particles and bacteria from reaching the tooth. Patients who receive dental sealants can't feel or see the plastic covering once in place. Our dentists at Trail View Dental Care can help Parker, CO patient's dental enamel to be protected from bacteria and decay.
"Great staff. One of the best exams I have ever had. Thank you! I think I found my new dentist."- O.M. / Google / Nov 09, 2018
"I've been going to Trail View Dental Care since I moved to Colorado eight years ago. As the dentists, dental assistants, and administrative staff have rotated in and out over the years, one thing has remained the same -- the fact that each of them are amazing people, professional, friendly, patient, kind, caring, and worth driving out of my way to get there. (We moved out of the immediate area some years back). Trail View Dental Care has helped me get over my fear and loathing of dentists. They're fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone -- from small children to the elderly."- L.J. / Google / Oct 09, 2018

What to Expect
Having sealants over the teeth at Trail View Dental Care is an easy procedure that is performed without sedation or numbing. Before the sealants are put on, the individual's teeth will be cleansed and buffed to make sure that plaque and tarter are not being sealed within the tooth. After this occurs, the tooth will be delicately scraped to where the sealant will be placed, then rinsed and dried. Once the tooth is prepared, our dentists will brush on the sealant onto the tooth and use a laser light to secure the sealant. Our dentists will ensure to make certain the sealant is secure.
With regular care, including consistent at-home oral care and on-going check ups at Trail View Dental Care with our dentists, sealants can last up to a decade. Our dentists will evaluate the integrity the sealants at every dental appointment. Patients will be kept informed as to whether they need to be replaced. Patients should always brush their teeth at least twice a day, as well as safeguard them by not clenching their teeth and eliminating sticky candy. While sealants are recommended for kids and adolescence, some older individuals may decide to wear their sealants if they have a history of getting cavities.
Insurance companies typically cover a large portion of the expense for dental sealants for kids and teenagers, but some cover older individuals as well. Trail View Dental Care's billing staff will confirm with the patient's insurance provider to get the exact benefits that are available. If the insurance plan does not cover the fees for dental sealants our dentists are happy to discuss various payment options. An important reminder is that the cost of sealants is typically less expensive than a filling or other dental repair.
