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.

"I had never been to Dental Works before, my insurance changed and I needed to change my dentist. From day one they treated me like family, (I am not a fan of dentists , and they made me feel at ease)...At my initial appointment I explained to them my lifetime wish to have white teeth, guess what? I have white teeth, I received veneers on my top teeth and I could not be happier!..I never thought I could afford veneers but with the help of Kim at the front desk and Dr.Adl I could have what I wished for my whole life. THANK YOU DR ADL and Kim....you are the best. So glad I made the switch to Dental Works.😊😊😊😊"- D.H. / Google / Sep 11, 2019
"Dr. Adl and his staff have been wonderful treating an infected tooth I had with a root canal procedure while in my third trimester of pregnancy. They always made sure I was comfortable while also making sure my baby was safe with the antibiotics I had to take with the infection and also using multiple aprons while getting x-rays. Dr. Adl even finished my root canal while sitting up as it got very uncomfortable to lay flat for a long period of time. Kim and Corinne made sure all insurance aspects were completely taken care of making it a very easy process for me. The dental hygienists were all so kind and personable making dreadful appointments much more enjoyable. I'm so grateful and appreciative for the staff at this location! Would highly recommend to anyone!"- E.V. / Google / Sep 04, 2019

After this occurs, the tooth will be delicately scraped to where the sealant will be placed, then rinsed and dried. Once the tooth is prepared, our dentists will brush on the sealant onto the tooth and use a laser light to secure the sealant. Our dentists will ensure to make certain the sealant is secure.
