Your oral health is an important component of your overall health. Oral health: a window to your overall health We cannot stress the importance of daily brushing and flossing enough. It's the best way to remove plaque, prevent cavities and periodontal disease. In addition, professional dental cleanings will help remove build-up in places your toothbrush and floss may have missed. If you have any pain while brushing or if you have any questions regarding how to brush properly, give us a call at 907-344-1990.
Our dental sealants are also an effective way to prevent tooth decay, and it only takes a few of minutes. In this procedure, a tooth-colored acrylic coating is painted onto the surface of your tooth, sealing the deep grooves. It acts as a barrier to protect enamel from plaque and acids. In addition to cleanings and sealants, we provide a number of different fillings and restoration treatment. Composite, or white, fillings are a strong, permanent yet natural looking restoration for tooth decay. You could also opt for the cost-effective and durable amalgam fillings.

We specialize in dentistry for the whole family. Going to the dentist for the first time can be a little scary for children. We want to make it a comfortable and fun process for them. The first dental visit should be just after your child's third birthday. This usually involves very little treatment. We may ask you to sit in the dental chair and hold your child during the examination. But we may also ask you to wait in the reception area to help us build a bond between child and dentist.
We will gently examine their teeth and gums and we may take x-rays. Our hygienist will clean their teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect against decay.
At the end of the appointment, we will go over how to clean and care for your child's teeth. We suggest you prepare your child the same way you would before their first haircut or trip to the shoe store. To solidify the positive experience of seeing the dentist, a trip to the prize box completes your child's visit.
