While dentistry has made great strides in being able to treat all kinds of dental issues, every dentist would agree that no treatment or procedure measures up to preventative care and keeping your natural teeth healthy. Brushing and flossing are the basics, but dental sealants can do even more to protect your teeth from cavities, decay and more serious issues.
Dental sealants are an easy but effective preventative treatment that will supplement your daily dental routine to protect and strengthen your natural teeth. All it takes for us is to paint a tooth-colored acrylic coating on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. The coating then seals the hard-to-reach grooves and depressions and creates a barrier that protects your teeth from cavity-causing bacteria.
The application itself only takes a few minutes, but the sealants act as a strong shield that protect your teeth for years to come. It is a preventative treatment for children and adults alike, so make sure to ask us about dental sealants at your next appointment!

This staff of professionals works together beautifully. The tooth cleaning and examination glide from one to the other with no waiting. Angela, the angel who cleans teeth is thorough but gentle. I cannot recommend this group more!
I've been to a dozen different dentists all over the country. Every aspect of Dr Falkel's expertise and office flow is superior. I never feel hustled or up sold. Best value and care I could want. Can I give MORE than 5 stars?!! Well deserved.
I have been going to Dr. Grosnick for over 20 years. That says it all! The staff at the office is always friendly and helpful. Something important to me: my appointment starts promptly when it is supposed to start. I wish all medical offices were like that.
