Fillings

  • Anesthetic is usually used for dental fillings. Your lips and tongue could be numb for several hours after your appointment. It is recommended that you avoid chewing until the numbness has completely worn off to avoid injury.
  • Hot, cold, and pressure sensitivity is normal after your appointment. The injection site may also be sore. Over the counter pain medications should handle any discomfort.
  • If temperature, pressure, bite, or any unexplained sensitivity persists, or gets worse, call our office immediately for an appointment.

 Sealants

  • Sealant are clear, or white shaded coatings that seal the deep pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth to help prevent decay. It is a normal feeling for the bite to feel slightly off after sealant placement. There may also be a slight after taste immediately following application. Rinsing with water will help remove the unwanted taste. Sealants can be chewed on right after placement.
  • As with all dental procedures, the longevity of sealants varies with each individual. The effectiveness of sealants is influenced by chewing patterns, grinding, chewing ice or hard foods, and bacterial plaque levels. Good oral hygiene is important. The acids produced by oral bacteria not only attack the teeth but can contribute to sealant failures. The condition of the sealants placed are checked at each re-care visit.
  • Sealants can chip or wear out. We will inform you if your child’s teeth ever need to be resealed. Any length of time that a sealant remains intact is a success in that it protects the tooth from decay for that period of time. The goal with sealants is to maintain tooth structure for as long as possible
Our Patients Say:

It is so nice to come into your office…I don’t feel like I am being taken advantage of financially like many other dental offices I have tried in Oshkosh. My options have always been explained to me upfront. I am always able to schedule my appointments around my schedule. Thank you. We believe you are doing an excellent job.

I continue to come to Glacier Dental for my dental care. The care and consideration I receive from the Glacier staff could not be matched by any dental provider where I currently live.

Maggie Humbert, Oshkosh

I can’t say enough good things about the staff and the quality of care I experienced at Glacier Dental. From assessment to planning to treatment, Glacier easily ranks an 11 on a scale from one to ten! Way to go Glacier! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

Truly a positive experience. I wish more establishments treated their customers like they do at Glacier. And I have to say the most gentle cleaning I’ve had.

Tyler Fitzsimmons, Appleton

Best dentist experience I’ve had. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I felt comfortable and informed the whole time. I’d recommend them to anyone.

Curtis Peck, Neenah

I moved to Princeton but I still come to Glacier Dental because the staff is very friendly. I had some concerns about a dental procedure done by somebody else and only Dr. Steckbauer took the time to call me and listen to my concerns and help put me at ease.
