how to prevent cavities Anchorage

Alaska Premier Dental Group serves all members of your family as a family dentistry practice. It’s always better to prevent a cavity than have to fill one.

The goal of preventive dentistry is to maintain good oral health so that no restorative dental work ever becomes required. Brushing your teeth and flossing every day is a great beginning to prevent oral disease. It’s also important to get twice yearly exams and dental cleanings, with fluoride treatments and sealants for children.

Dental sealants are a thin plastic covering, commonly used on the very back teeth. These teeth are especially susceptible to trapped food particles, and at the same time tend to be the hardest ones to brush. The goal of a sealant is to protect a tooth against decay.

Sealants act as a barrier between food particles, plaque, and the teeth. The good news is that sealants are easy to apply and last for years. After our team applies the sealants, they will be checked with each visit and re-applied as needed.

Brushing, flossing, and regular cleanings help ensure that teeth are strong and clean and will last a lifetime. Changing your toothbrush every few months and using a toothpaste with fluoride are also good health practices.

At Alaska Premier Dental Group, we can help your family maintain good oral health. Our services include cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
