    Getting Your Teeth Sealed Could Prevent Future Decay

    Dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating that is applied to the areas of your teeth that are used for chewing. These include areas such as your back teeth (premolars and molars) and are used primarily to prevent tooth decay.

    Sealants quickly bond to the grooves of your teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of your teeth, thus preventing plaque and food from getting stuck and causing decay.

    Most people are good candidates for sealants, primarily children and teenagers as they are more likely to eat foods that will cause decay, and often are not as adept at brushing as adults.

    Dental Sealants Explained

    How Do Sealants Work?

    Applying dental sealants is a simple, quick, and painless process. A sealant can be applied during a regular dental visit by your dentist or a hygienist. After your teeth are cleaned, and dried, an acid-based solution is applied to the chewing areas of ones teeth, which helps with bonding. Sealant is painted directly onto the tooth enamel , where it bonds directly to a tooth and then hardens. Quite often, a curing light will be used to help speed sealant hardening.

    Sealants work essentially by keeping the bad stuff out. The bond they form to one’s teeth provide an actual layer of protection, essentially making your teeth “sealed” from decay that could otherwise be caused by improper brushing or bacteria. They protect the unique depressions and grooves of your teeth, especially in areas where ones toothbrush bristles may not reach. While they are not fool-proof, and you can still get decay even with sealants, they dramatically reduce the potential for cavities and decay, and on average, sealants can last up to ten years. Even better, sealants are relatively inexpensive and are mostly covered by dental insurance.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Discover the benefits of dental sealants with our FAQs. Learn how this protective coating prevents cavities, who can benefit, and the simple process behind this essential oral health procedure.

    What are dental sealants?

    Dental sealants are thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars to shield them from decay-causing bacteria and acids. At Delaney Dental Park, we use safe and effective sealants to keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free.
    Dental sealants are particularly beneficial for children and teenagers who are prone to cavities due to their developing oral hygiene habits. However, adults with deep grooves or fissures on their teeth can also benefit from sealant application to prevent decay. Delaney Dental Park recommends sealants as part of a comprehensive preventive dental care plan for all ages.
    Dental sealants can last for several years with proper care and maintenance. At Delaney Dental Park, our high-quality sealants are designed to withstand normal wear and tear, providing long-lasting protection against cavities. However, regular dental check-ups are essential to monitor the condition of sealants and ensure they remain intact.
    Dental sealants are usually clear or tooth-colored, making them virtually invisible when applied to the teeth. At Delaney Dental Park, we use aesthetic sealants that blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color, ensuring a discreet and attractive smile while safeguarding your dental health.
    Dental sealants require minimal maintenance and do not necessitate any special care routine. However, it’s crucial to maintain good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, to prolong the effectiveness of sealants. Delaney Dental Park advises avoiding biting hard objects or chewing on ice to prevent damage to the sealants.
    Yes, dental sealants are safe and commonly used to protect teeth from decay. The materials used in sealants are non-toxic and biocompatible, posing no harm to your health. Delaney Dental Park follows strict guidelines and uses FDA-approved sealants, ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients during every procedure.
    While dental sealants are typically applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, they can be beneficial for other teeth with deep grooves or fissures. Delaney Dental Park evaluates each patient’s dental anatomy and recommends sealants based on individual needs to provide comprehensive protection against cavities.
    Many dental insurance plans cover the cost of dental sealants, especially for children and teenagers, as they are considered a preventive measure to avoid more extensive dental treatments in the future. Delaney Dental Park accepts most major dental insurance plans and can assist in verifying coverage for sealant treatments.
    No, the application of dental sealants is a painless and quick procedure. Before applying the sealants, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and dried, and the sealant material is carefully painted onto the tooth surface. Delaney Dental Park ensures a comfortable experience for our patients during sealant application, minimizing any discomfort.
    Dental sealants are designed to be long-lasting, but they can be removed if necessary. If a sealant becomes damaged or worn out over time, it can be safely removed and replaced during a routine dental visit at Delaney Dental Park. Our experienced dental professionals will assess the condition of the sealants and recommend appropriate action to maintain optimal dental health.

    I was nervous to commit to a new dentist for work I needed done representing a significant out of pocket financial investment. There are a lot of providers in Anchorage who offer the same service and aside from online reviews it can be difficult to vet them with confidence. After making a few calls and speaking to different practices I decided on Delaney Dental based on the quality of consultation and the price. I couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Miles and his staff. They were kind, non-judgemental, and professional. Everyone was responsive to my questions and requests over the 5 month treatment plan period and I’m very happy with the final outcome. Highly recommend.

    I was really nervous about getting ALL FOUR wisdom tooth removed at once but the staff here were so kind a reassuring. Dr.Sashi did a fantastic job going over the procedure with me before putting me under and I couldn’t have been more grateful. I am recovering perfectly and would highly recommend him to anyone feeling squeamish about any oral procedures.
