Before & After Sealant
A sealant is a thin plastic coating painted and cured onto the biting surfaces of permanent molars, and sometimes bicuspids, that have never had fillings in those biting surfaces and have not begun to decay. Although caries (decay) in those surfaces in adults is not as common as in children and especially teenagers, sealants are just as effective in preventing cavities in those occlusal (biting) surfaces, regardless of age. Again, many insurance companies don’t pay for sealants in adults for the same reasons they don’t cover many other treatments. But when dealing with an organization like insurance companies, whose only motivation is profit, why should we let them dictate our medical, dental and health needs. Ask your dentist if he thinks you would benefit from and be a candidate for sealants.
