More than 75% of tooth decay begins in the deep grooves that exist on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Sealants protect your teeth against decay with a thin, plastic coating that provides a surface that’s easier to clean and less susceptible to tooth decay.
Sealants can protect your teeth from decay for many years to come, but the sealants may need to be touched up at your regular dental visits. If they were done at our office, this is done at no charge.
Who Are Good Candidates for Dental Sealants?
Children and teenagers, adults, and even infants can be excellent candidates for sealants. They can be used to protect teeth that are just starting to emerge, as long as enough of the tooth is exposed.
If you live in Howard, Shawano, De Pere, Seymour, or Pulaski, you are encouraged to contact Dr. Brusky and ask about tooth sealants today.
