Sealants

Sealants should be used as part of total preventive dental care for children as well as adults. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings which are applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars (back teeth). Since tooth decay occurs in these surfaces quite often, sealants are applied to cover the chewing surfaces to prevent decay. Applying sealants does not require drilling or removing tooth structure. It is an easy three-step process. First the tooth is cleaned with a special toothpaste. Then a special cleansing liquid, on a tiny piece of cotton, is rubbed gently on the tooth and is washed off. Finally, the sealant is painted on the tooth. It takes about one minute for the sealant to form a protective shield. One sealant application can last for as long as five to 10 years. Sealants should be checked regularly, and reapplied if they are no longer in place.

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.

Great staff, great place. Had a wonderful appointment, Dr. Steckbauer was not only caring but also very willing to explain anything I had questions about. The assistant was also fantastic she put me at ease and is knowledgeable about the procedure.
