Protect Your Smile and Prevent Cavities
Sealants for Children and Adults in Anchorage
Teeth surfaces are rarely completely smooth. You may have fine grooves and pits in your enamel that are too narrow for bristles to reach when you brush. Dental sealants are plastic coating to smoothen the surface of the teeth, fill in these gaps, and prevent plaque from building up. Sealants are often recommended for children and for adults who have grooved, cavity-prone teeth.

- Easy Application: It only takes minutes to apply dental sealants. The procedure is painless, non-invasive, and takes one visit.
- Saves Money: Since sealants are so effective, it’s unlikely you’ll need to pay for expensive fillings or other dental treatments.
