Dental Sealants

Dentistry for Children

A dental sealant is a clear plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of permanent back teeth (molars and premolars) where decay occurs most often. Pits and fissures are depressions and grooves in the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They are difficult to keep clean because toothbrush bristles cannot reach into them. The sealant forms a thin covering that keeps out plaque and food and decreases the risk of tooth decay. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. Our team at Southeast Family Dental would be happy to apply sealants to your child’s teeth at their next cleaning appointment.

Use It or Lose It!

Calendar December 31
Most insurance companies have a benefit deadline of December 31, and this means that any of your unused benefits don’t roll over into the new year. So, if your insurance plan will pay for roughly $1,500 of treatments each calendar year, and you haven’t used this amount by the end of the year, you lose it. Read more about this

Don't wait to schedule your appointments until the last few weeks in December. Call Southeast Family Dental TODAY at 317.359.8000 to schedule your appointment.
