About Dental Sealants
Since home oral care methods are not always able to reach every area of the mouth, dental sealants are an effective way to improve protection against bacteria and cavities. Created with a thin, flexible plastic material, dental sealants are placed to the top layer surface of the back molars. Once in place, sealants seal out plaque, tartar, and bacteria from reaching the tooth. Individuals who get dental sealants will not see or feel the devices once in place. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Grove City can help Grove City, OH patient's enamel to be cleaner and protected from decay and bacteria.

"Dr. Wong is excellent at working with the customers, is fair, and works well to please others.I really enjoy negotiating pricing and having her explain what would be best for me for my sister’s up and coming wedding next year.I know that she will be the person for whom I should speak to in regards of a second opinion on my tooth and will do her best to get it at best price for my finically situation.I will always stick with Dr. Wong’s advice and council with her if I can reach an agreement on price if I’m ever to make a change in the shade, color, or texture of my tooth when I’m able to get qualified dental insurance.She worked well with me on Care Credit, but I know that I will have to get my tooth changed eventually so it looks more natural to my other teeth as well. Thank again Dr. Wong and I hope that we can work out pricing for my tooth once again as soon as you can so I can get an adjustment."- J.B. / Google / Apr 05, 2019
