Both children and adults can reduce the risk of tooth decay with the application of preventative sealants. The grooves on your molars or premolars, which are also known as cusps can be hard to reach with a toothbrush and sealants are an easy way to protect those teeth. You can make an appointment for dental sealants in Maryville, Illinois, with our dentists, Dr. Pat Murphy, Dr. Patrick Heulsmann, or Dr. Mike Murphy, by calling Dental Wellness Center of Maryville at 618-288-1923.
