Sometimes brushing, flossing, and regular checkups aren't enough to stop cavities from forming. Fortunately, more protection is available.
Dr. Jason Streeter can use dental sealants to prevent tooth decay on the molars and premolars. It's a simple and effective solution.

What Are Dental Sealants? How Sealants Work
Dental sealants are a thin, clear plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars. The material is able to cover the deep grooves of these teeth where food particles and oral bacteria like to hide.
Sealants create a protective barrier from bacteria and food particles, which prevents tooth decay from developing.

Are Sealants Covered by Insurance?
Dental insurance will typically cover some or all of a sealant procedure. The team at our Colorado Springs practice can assist with the process and discuss financing options to make the procedure even more affordable. We also offer an in-house discount plan that can help uninsured patients receive the care they need.
