Our dentist and team offer dental sealants in Scottsdale, Arizona, which provide protection for your back teeth and molars from the hazards of tooth decay.
Dr. Kristopher Alpers provides sealants, which are thin, plastic coatings that are painted on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Sealants are necessary because your permanent teeth and molars are crucial to your dental health. By keeping them healthy and strong, you will be able to continue to eat the foods you know and love without worrying about decay or infection. The sealants are meant to shield the tooth from food particles, plaque and bacteria that could get stuck in the crevices and cause decay.
Our dentist will begin the process by deep cleaning your tooth. Once the tooth is cleaned and dried, he will apply a gentle acid solution to slightly roughen up the tooth’s surface, which helps the sealant bond to the tooth. The tooth is then rinsed and dried. Our dentist will complete the process by painting the sealant onto the tooth and hardening it with a special light.
