Sealants are important for children because they help protect from tooth decay. The little ones love sugar which is used by germs to make acids. Sealants can last for up to ten years, or until children are better at caring for their teeth.

Children develop their teeth under the gum line in the womb even though their first tooth may not erupt until they are six months old. Once that first tooth pops out it is exposed to milk, cereal, baby food, toys, dirty blankets and anything else your active infant can get his hands on. Schedule a “Meet the Dentist” appointment for your baby today and introduce him to the wonders of the dental office. He can sit in the chair and ride it up and down, look at the pretty light, and the doctor can get a good peek and make sure everything looks A-Okay. Next time when he comes back, he will know where he’s going and will not be apprehensive of the dentist at all, we will all be friends.
We always preauthorize with your Insurance Carrier before discussing your Treatment Plan with you, however in some cases, the Carrier will pay less than they agree on the preauthorization. In these cases, a balance will be due and we will have to bill you for the remainder. We take all precautions to try and avoid these occurrences.
