Spokane Valley Dental Sealants & Fluoride Varnish

Protect your teeth for a healthy future

Dental sealants and fluoride varnish help protect your teeth from decay

While tooth decay might be inevitable for many patients, there is a lot you can do to help prevent it as much as possible. While regular appointments and oral hygiene at home go a long way, a little help never hurts.

Spokane Family Smiles offers dental sealant and fluoride varnish treatments to our patients during your twice-yearly cleaning and exam. This is a particularly good treatment for children who live in a city or town that does not offer fluoride in the tap water.

Benefits of dental sealants and fluoride varnish
  • Reduces the likelihood of tooth decay
  • Simple & fast procedure
  • Minimally-invasive
  • An effective treatment that will prevent cavities

You deserve a smile you can be proud of

“We recommend that most patients, particularly children who do not regularly drink fluorinated water, be treated with sealants and fluoride. There are few easy wins in life, but these 2 simple treatments are quick, painless, and make a real difference in fighting tooth decay.”.

Common dental sealant questions

Is fluoride bad for you?

Absolutely not. While ingesting a large amount of fluoride can be bad for you, our solution contains well below the safe amount of fluoride.

What does dental sealant do?

Our Spokane Valley dental sealants treatment “seals” the pit and grooves in the hard-to-clean parts of your teeth, particularly your back teeth. It is painted on your teeth, hardening into a protective shell around the enamel of your teeth. This protects your teeth from the risk of cavities.

Does insurance cover dental sealants and fluoride varnish?

While all dental insurance plans are different, many insurance policies consider both dental sealants and fluoride varnish as preventive treatments and will cover most of the cost of your Spokane Valley dental sealant and fluoride varnish treatment.
