Dental Sealants Newton, MA

Overview

Dental sealants are an easy treatment to protect your teeth from decay and cavities. They are thin, flexible plastic coatings that can be put on the tops of your back teeth (molars and premolars). Once they're placed, sealants block bacteria, plaque, tartar, and food particles to protect from several problems, such as cavities. Dental sealants may stay on for many years with proper care, including a regular oral hygiene routine at home. They not only maintain the health of your mouth and lower the risk of dental cavities, but they may also save you from expensive treatments at your annual dental exam at Newton Centre Dental. Talk to our dental team at your exam in our Newton, MA office to help you decide if dental sealants are a good choice for you and your family.

Best Candidates for Dental Sealants

Good candidates for sealants are patients who are prone to developing cavities or tooth decay. In many cases, dental sealants are suggested for younger children and teens who may not have a regular oral hygiene routine. The application of dental sealants is a simple, fast treatment that generally doesn't need sedation or anesthesia, making it a great procedure for all ages.

What to Expect

At your consult, we will first examine your teeth to decide if dental sealants are right for you. Before the application, we will clean your teeth to remove tartar, plaque, and bacteria. Next, we will brush on the sealant and set the material using a light. After the application is set, we will check if your dental sealant is in the correct position.

I just had work done for a new crown after my molar broke during the weekend. Dr. Parent and her assistant Jenny were efficient, professional, very friendly, and made the experience as stress-free as possible.

Great experience at NCD. Dr. Parent was efficient in fixing my discolored tooth and I am very happy with the results.

Dr Lee and Jessica are a great team. They were really efficient when they gave me two fillings. They did a great job. Dr. Lee was also very good about explaining the pain relief options and also encouraging me to try to get a small filling filled without the Novocaine, which I really appreciated and ended up doing easily.

I am a relatively new patient to Dr. Parent. I was a patient of Dr. Levitt’s for a very long time. Dr. Parent has been a wonderful dentist to me so far. I live on the south shore and it takes me close to an hour to get to my appointments. She is sensitive to this and has worked within her schedule to fit me in for unexpected dental issues that have come up. I am so appreciative of these efforts. Just this morning I was quite late for my 7:30am appointment (20 minutes!) and she graciously proceeded without uttering a word of my being so late. She is patient, kind and takes the time to deliver the best care she can and for that I am most grateful. She has been a wonderful addition to Newton Center Dental and I’m happy she’s my dentist 😊

Follow-Up

After your treatment, you will be free to resume your day. It's important for you to develop a good home oral care plan, including brushing your teeth two times every day, along with mouthwash and flossing. You should try to avoid putting heavy pressure on your back teeth or consuming foods that are sticky. With good care, dental sealants may last for years. At your dental examination at Newton Centre Dental, we will decide if your dental sealants should be applied again.

Insurance Coverage

Dental sealants are a preventive treatment and many dental insurance companies pay for some of the cost in children. Coverage can vary, particularly in adults so we will figure out your coverage by calling your insurance company and then letting you know your costs. Newton Centre Dental takes many methods of payment and we can assist you with low-interest medical financing.

Dental Sealants
