Dental sealant is the cheapest and most comfortable solution to long term damage in your teeth, and future expenses. Especially for kids who can get the best out of dental sealants, before it turns in a bigger problem.
A recent study shows that the usage of dental sealants in children can decrease the probability of having cavities and caries by the 80%. It can also be used as a treatment for other dental problems.
Sealants are simply plastic covers to your teeth that protect the teeth from bacteria and food leftovers to hide and get rotten in your mouth. It’s important to know that dental sealants are not more effective than day to day brushing and flossing your teeth.
However, they are a great help for children and adults who want some extra protection to their dental health. The cost is pretty convenient for people, it costs around 40$ to 60$ to put a surface of sealant on each tooth.

- First, we clean and sanitize your mouth and teeth, plus all the saliva and liquid will be dried off with a vacuum. Then, you will wait one minute for your mouth to completely dry out.
- Then, we will apply a special gel on your teeth, the ones that we are going to place sealant on. This is an extra step just to make sure there is no particles or dirtiness that may store after the sealant is placed in.
