Preventative dentistry

Preventative dentistry: recommended for everyone

Contact us for your preventative dentistry at one of our dental locations in Anchorage or Wasilla.

It's easier to prevent dental problems than to fix them, so at Four Corners Dental Group, we recommend  preventative dentistry procedures aimed at strengthening your teeth and preventing decay. While brushing and flossing will remove food particles and plaque from most of the tooth, they may not be able to reach into the depressions and grooves. This is why sealants are a great preventative dentistry procedure which provides that added protection. If you are in Anchorage or Wasilla,  call us today to schedule an appointment.

Dental sealants

Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. A sealant is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, premolars and molars. They act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. A dental sealant protects enamel from plaque and acids. Our sealants are top quality, so call today.

Easy to apply

Sealants are simple to apply and only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth. Your teeth will be cleaned first, then the chewing surfaces are roughened with an acid solution that will help the sealant adhere to the tooth. The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens.

Protection from decay

While the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. You can expect your sealant to last several years before reapplication is needed. Your dentist will check your sealants during a regular dental visit and reapply if necessary. Call for an appointment at one of our convenient locations today.
