Sealants in Parker

Sealants are used to cover the back teeth, molars and some of the front teeth in a thin coat of plastic which protects these teeth from the potentially damaging effects of bacteria and acids. Even the best toothbrushes may have trouble efficiently cleaning these teeth, and lingering bacteria and acids are the primary cause of tooth decay.

The teeth have grooves and spaces on the surfaces called fissures and cingulum pits. These spaces are most vulnerable to tooth decay because food particles can get stuck between the teeth. Since a toothbrush has a hard time reaching the area, tooth decay can occur.

Fluoride is an efficient tool for preventing tooth decay and protecting the surface of these teeth. However, when a dental sealant is applied to the chewing surface of the teeth, the pits and grooves are efficiently sealed and protected from lingering germs or food particles.

Sealants are a simple, minimally invasive procedure that can protect and defend your teeth for 5-10 years. The procedure does not involve any drilling or filing and can be done quickly. Sealants do not take the place of regular fluoride use but instead will work with the fluoride to keep the surface of back teeth cavity free. Sealants are typically found in children that are at a higher risk for tooth decay.

Most insurance companies consider sealants a preventative treatment and cover them at 100% up to age 14.

"My husband and I have been going to Stonegate dental for several years now. Dr. Rentz and his staff are excellent. I have been afraid of the dentist my whole life, so I never thought I’d like one, but Dr Rentz puts me at ease. I still have major anxiety about getting any dental work other than cleanings but at this office they explain everything before they do it, they stop if I need a break, and they are compassionate about my anxieties. I hope I never have to find another dentist!"

"I felt at home from the moment I walked in. I was greeted upon arrival by Deb. - i waited for about 5 mins before seeing Wendy, she took x-rays and coached me through a little of what to expect. Then came Dr. Rentz, he took a peak and gave me his professional opinion regarding the work I needed done and made recommendations, high priority to least. - Stacy and Deb worked through aquiring my gum measurements etc. and before I knew it the team had presented me with a full action plan, completely itemized in a way that was easy to understand. - Dr.Rentz and the Stonegate team provided me with truly exceptional service/care. Thanks everyone. :)"
