When it comes to your smile, you want it to be as protected as possible, right? At Anchorage Dental Arts, LLC we do too! Which is why we recommend dental sealants in Anchorage for most of our patients. Dental sealants are a preventive dentistry option that can reduce a patient’s risk of tooth decay and cavity formation caused by bacteria, acid, and plaque in the mouth. Wondering if dental sealants would be right for you and your family? Feel free to schedule an appointment, we’d be more than happy to get you all on the schedule for a consultation with our dentist.
Dental sealants are actually made from a liquid, BPA-free plastic material that is typically tooth-colored or clear. Once the dental sealants have been applied and allowed to dry, they create a barrier between the patient’s teeth and the damage caused by debris, plaque, bacteria, and acid. Dental sealants also effectively seal pits, grooves and depressions often found on the chewing surfaces of teeth, allowing patients to more properly clean their smile, leaving them with better oral hygiene.
As mentioned above, most teeth actually have depressions, grooves, and pits that are the perfect place for debris, bacteria, and plaque to hide. Dental sealants seal these areas, making it easier for the teeth to be cleaned. The sealants also provide a barrier, reducing the patient’s risk of tooth decay and cavity formation. Schedule your appointment for Anchorage dental sealants today!
The whole process for dental sealants actually only takes a few minutes. Your dentist will paint the dental sealant directly on the chewing surfaces of teeth, allowing it to fully dry. Once dried, your pearly whites have an extra layer of protection from decay and cavities.
