Protecting your teeth from decay is an important preventive measure to promote lifelong dental health. Molars and other chewing surfaces are especially vulnerable to decay, particularly in children who are often less effective at cleaning their own teeth and more susceptible to tooth decay. To help protect these teeth and prevent tooth decay and cavities, we often recommend dental sealants.
Dental sealants are an important part of an overall preventive treatment plan for children, and they are also sometimes recommended for adults. The procedure is simple and involves applying plastic coatings on the chewing surfaces of permanent back teeth. Once applied, the sealants keep bacterial plaque and food sugars out of the deep grooves of the molar teeth. Sealants can last for years and typically will help protect a child's teeth during the period when biting surface decay normally occurs. Sealants are a part of a total prevention program that includes regular dental visits, use of fluoride, daily brushing and flossing, and limiting sugary foods and drinks.
We apply sealants during regular dental visits according to your treatment plan at all of our locations throughout the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Why do some doctors not have a star rating or comments?
In order to provide our patients with the most accurate and beneficial information, we only post star ratings and comments for a doctor once they have received a minimum of 30 surveys within the previous 12 months.
