Dental Sealants in Anchorage AK


Keep Your Children Protected From Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is one of the most prevalent childhood diseases. When permanent teeth begin to erupt, they especially need protection. Now you can protect against cavities before they start with preventive dental sealants!

What Are Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings that are placed into the pits and grooves of your child’s adult premolars and/or molars. Think of sealants as shields against tooth decay. Your child will be able to brush and floss normally, but the sealants provide an extra layer of protection that blocks out bacteria.

How Are They Placed?

The process is simple and takes only a few minutes. There is no anesthesia or preparation needed. Most of the time, sealants are placed by one of our hygienists during a routine cleaning appointment. We recommend placing sealants on the 6-year and 12-year molars as soon as they begin to erupt.

Daily At-Home Care is Still Necessary

While dental sealants can protect the chewing surfaces of the teeth from forming cavities, they do not protect the areas between teeth. It is still important for you to help your child floss between their teeth each day. During your child’s appointment, we will show them how to keep their teeth clean, and teach you how to check that they’re doing it right!

Years of Cavity Protection in Just a Few Minutes

Dental sealants can last up to ten years, which is a lot of protection from a treatment that only takes a few minutes. Save your child from cavities and missed school days by choosing dental sealants today.

Huffman Family Dentistry is an outstanding dental practice. My wife and I are always treated very well. The Dental hygenis who I see is a young lady named Whitney and she is outstanding. Both dentists in the practice are superb. We are fortunate to have found a dental practice that is so outstanding. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for good Dentistry.

I just had my best ever dental appointment at Huffman Family Dentistry! I have extreme sensitivities to certain sounds and sensations, and the scraping of metal on my teeth is a combination of two of my worst issues. In all of my other appointments, I have cried in the chair, had meltdowns, and (at my best) had panic attacks that shook my body while they were working on my mouth. I recently saw a tiktok where someone had similar issues at the dentist, and they recommended asking for plastic tools instead of the standard metal. I immediately called up my dentist and asked if that would be an option for me, and they said that as long as I signed a waiver stating that I understood it wouldn’t be as effective as the metal tools, they could use those instead. I just came out of the appointment, and I did not have any sort of panic response whatsoever. I didn’t cry, I was only mildly uncomfortable, and I was able to keep my composure the entire time. The hygienist was quick and sympathetic, and every person was kind and helpful at every step. If you have issues with going to the dentist and that’s stopping you from going, please consider giving them a call and asking what non-traditional things can be done to help. Huffman Family Dentistry was incredible with me, and now I am not afraid to schedule my next appointment!
