About dental sealants
Seasoned dentist Dr. Michaela Tozzi is pleased to be serving Henderson, NV and the Greater Las Vegas area with outstanding dental care. We offer a variety of treatments, including dental sealants. These are an easy way to protect your teeth from tooth decay and cavities. Sealants are thin, pliable plastic coatings that can be applied to the tops of the back teeth (premolars and molars). Once they're positioned, sealants block bacteria, tartar, plaque, and food particles from gathering on the teeth. This helps prevent many dental issues, such as cavities, gum disease, and infection. Dental sealants can last years if properly cared for with an effective home oral hygiene regimen. Sealants not only improve the health of your mouth and prevent cavities, but they can also save money at future annual dental visits at Michaela Tozzi, DMD. Call our office today to learn more about dental sealants and how they can help you.

Candidates for dental sealants
Ideal candidates for dental sealants would be anyone who is prone to developing cavities or tooth decay. In many cases, sealants are suggested for young children and some teens who may not practice good oral care, such as routine brushing and flossing. Dental sealant application is a fast, simple treatment that usually doesn't require sedation or anesthesia, which makes it a great procedure for patients of any age.
What to Expect during your visit
In your consult, Dr. Tozzi will first need to assess your teeth to determine if sealants are the right treatment for you. Prior to the application, your teeth will be cleaned and polished to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar. Then, Dr. Tozzi will apply the sealant with a small brush and set it using a specialized light. After the application is set, Dr. Tozzi will ensure that your sealant is in the correct position. This process usually only takes a few short minutes to complete.
After your procedure, you will be free to go home to resume your day. It's important that you develop a good oral care routine, including brushing twice every day, using mouthwash, and flossing. You should also avoid putting heavy pressure on your back teeth or eating sticky foods. With proper care, dental sealants can last for years. During your annual exam at Michaela Tozzi, DMD, Dr. Tozzi will examine the wear and tear of your sealants to decide if another application is needed.
Dental sealants are a preventive treatment, and many insurance companies cover some or all of the costs for children. Coverage will vary, especially in adults, so our office will figure out your exact coverage by contacting your insurance company and then calculate your costs. Michaela Tozzi, DMD accepts several payment methods, and we can assist you in finding low-interest medical financing. We also accept Smile Advantage savings programs for those who do not have dental insurance.
