Tooth decay, bacteria, plaque buildup and debris can all be detrimental to your oral health. Our dentists and team offer the option of dental sealants to protect from anything that can cause gum disease or other dental problems. Your molars and premolars play a large role in your overall health, grinding and crushing your foods so your body can easily digest them. That is why it’s so important to protect them.
Although your molars play such an important role, the cusps on top also create the opportunity for plaque and debris to linger. By placing dental sealants on top of these cusps (especially as soon as the permanent molars erupt), you can protect your smile. Most people typically receive dental sealants between the ages of 6 and 12, but as an adult, you are still a candidate. The process is simple: our team cleans and dries the tooth, treating it with a mild solution to gently erode the tooth to help the sealant solution to better attach. Then the sealant is applied to create a smooth surface that is easier to brush and clean.
Give our office a call at (907) 33-SMILE(76453) to set up an appointment to have dental sealants placed on your molars and premolars. Protect you, your child’s or a family member’s smile with dental sealants in Anchorage, Alaska.
