About Dental Sealants
Since brushing and flossing are not designed to reach every tooth far in the back of the mouth, teeth sealants are an preventative way to proactively gain protection against decay and infection. Made with plastic that is thin and flexible, dental sealants are secured to the chewing surface of the molars and premolars. Once secured on the tooth, sealants create a barrier from plaque and bacteria from reaching the tooth. People who have dental sealants don't sense the sealants once in place. Our dentists at Saddle Brook Dental Care can help White Settlement, TX patient's teeth to be safely guarded from bacteria, plaque, and decay.
"Stellar customer service! Very straightforward and ever so helpful. I called this AM at 8 after finding them online. My brother needed immediate assistance because he was in throbbing pain and had to call into work over it. They gave us an appt 40 minutes from when I called. Was seen and the problems with my brothers teeth were explained in great detail with language he could understand. Laura was so helpful I wanted to hug her. She was able to arrange for my brother to be seen by another dentist nearby within the hour to have the extraction taken care of. She also did a fantastic job explaining the costs and what options were available to us due to our financial restraints. Laura saved the day for us! I truly appreciate everyone at Saddle Brook Dental for their assistance today.We will definitely be using them for all future dental work. And again, Laura was amazing!Thank you Laura and the team!

"I show up on time and get seen quickly. Staff is friendly and professional. Dr. PATEL is sweet & great at what she does. Today I saw Ortho Doctor Griffin I believe was his name and he was Amazing! I got my braces at 27 😁 Both Doctor's explained treatment options and their plans really well. They offer great financial help as well. I had to take my 5 year old son to all visits and they were very kind to him which was a huge plus ❤ I am definitely glad that I chose them as my Primary and for my Ortho even more. Cant wait to see the final look in two years!"- M.H. / Google / Jun 02, 2019

What to Expect
Putting sealants on top of the teeth at Saddle Brook Dental Care is a quick and simple treatment that is done without any type of sedation. Before the sealants are placed into position, the teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to make certain that tarter, plaque, and bacteria are not being sealed inside the tooth. Once this is done, the tooth will be lightly molded and shaped to where the sealant will go, then rinsed and dried. Once the tooth is ready, our dentists will place the sealant over the tooth and use a unique light to harden the sealant. Our dentists will test to confirm the sealant is hardened.
With proper care, including thorough oral care and bi-annual check ups at Saddle Brook Dental Care with our dentists, teeth sealants can last up to for years. Our dentists will check the wear of the sealants at every dental exam. Patients will be kept up to date as to whether they may need to be replaced. Patients should consistently brush their teeth twice a day, as well as guard them by not grating their teeth and limiting sticky candy. While sealants are considered for younger patients, some patients over 20 may get sealants if they worry about getting cavities.
Insurance providers usually cover the bill for dental sealants for younger patients, but some cover older patients as well. Saddle Brook Dental Care's insurance coordinators will check with the patient's insurance policy to get the exact coverage available. If the benefits plan does not cover costs for teeth sealants our dentists are happy to discuss acceptable payment options. Something to remember is that the cost of sealants is generally less costly than a filling or other dental treatment.
