What are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. These back teeth have fissures and pits where food particles and bacteria can accumulate, making them susceptible to cavities. Sealants act as a barrier, sealing these vulnerable areas and preventing decay.

The Importance of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants play a crucial role in safeguarding your teeth against decay and cavities. They offer the following benefits:

  • Enhanced Protection: Sealants provide an added layer of defense, ensuring that the chewing surfaces of your teeth remain shielded from harmful bacteria and acid attacks.
  • Prevention of Cavities: By sealing off the deep grooves on molars and premolars, sealants prevent food particles from getting trapped, thus reducing the risk of cavities.
  • Long-lasting Solution: With proper care, dental sealants can last several years, providing long-term protection for your teeth.
  • Pain-Free Procedure: Getting dental sealants is simple and painless, making it suitable for children and adults.

The Dental Sealants Procedure

Getting dental sealants at Fox View Dental is quick and hassle-free, often completed during a routine dental checkup and cleaning. Here’s what you can expect during your appointment.

Thorough Teeth Cleaning

Before applying the sealant, a member of our experienced dental team will clean the tooth surface, ensuring it’s free from debris and plaque.


Once cleaned, Dr. Chad will dry the tooth and apply an etching solution to create a slightly rougher surface. This step helps the sealant adhere firmly to the tooth.

Sealant Application

The sealant material is carefully applied to the grooves and pits of the tooth, effectively sealing off any vulnerable areas.

Curing Process

Our Green Bay dentist will then use a curing light, hardening and bonding the material securely to the tooth.

Final Check

Dr. Chad will examine the sealant to ensure it has formed a smooth, protective layer.

Repeat for Other Teeth

If necessary, Dr. Yenchesky will repeat this procedure for other molars and premolars.
