About Dental Sealants
Since toothbrushes can't always reach every nook and cranny of the mouth, sealants are an easy way to increase protection against cavities, decay, and bacteria. Manufactured with flexible plastic, dental sealants are applied to the occlusal surface of the upper and lower back teeth. Once in position, sealants prevent food particles and bacteria from reaching the tooth. Patients who receive dental sealants can't feel or see the plastic covering once in place. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Pewaukee can help Pewaukee, WI patient's dental enamel to be protected from bacteria and decay.
