Dental Sealants

At Green Dental of Alexandria, we are here to provide our patients of all ages comprehensive dental care. We want to be the dental practice you trust to meet the dental healthcare needs of everyone in your family. Dental sealants are one way that we use preventive measures to ensure the health and longevity of your smile. Dental sealants are a plastic resin material applied to the molars and premolars where decay is most likely to occur. Dental sealants “seal out” plaque, food particles, and bacteria to protect the teeth. While many people relate dental sealants to children’s dental care, adults benefit from dental sealants in the same way. We are proud to offer dental sealants to all of our patients at Green Dental of Alexandria because we know that comprehensive and preventive care go a long way in oral health.

Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings are essential to maintaining optimal oral health. However, brushing and flossing can only do so much between visits. Floss and toothbrushes are designed specifically to clean the smooth surfaces of the teeth. The bristles of a toothbrush are too large to fit into the tiny fissures and grooves of the teeth; therefore, any food particles left behind will grow bacteria and cause decay to begin. Dental sealants protect these vulnerable areas by acting as a barrier against plaque and acids from the breakdown of food particles. Dental sealants are easy to apply, are 100% pain free, and do not require down time from patients. Applied after a thorough cleaning, sealants are painted on the teeth and then hardened with a curing light so that they bond tightly with the teeth. Dental sealants can last for a few years before reapplication is needed.

If you are interested in having dental sealants for yourself or a member of your family, call Green Dental of Alexandria to schedule this application at the end of your next dental cleaning. Your smile is important to us, and protecting it with preventive dental sealants is an easy way to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile for life.

I had my first visit, for a routine cleaning. I am very impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment, the convenience of appointments outside of ""regular"" business hours, the friendly staff and the thoroughness of the examination and cleaning procedure. Dr. Park was careful, compassionate, a good listener, and explained a lot about my teeth and her recommendations to care for my dental health moving forward. I am pleased and I look forward to being a long-term patient! Thanks Green Dental of Alexandria!

Gold Stars on all fronts. The office is spotless, gives off a great vibe and has quiet soothing classical music playing. The front desk people are very warm and go above and beyond. Televisions are placed above the chairs so you can relax and watch TV while they work away under the hood. Dr. Park is very kind, thorough, and addressed all my concerns and questions.
Sure cleanings hurt a bit, but I actually look forward to them now!

Best dental experience I've had in a long time. The reception/billing staff was friendly and helpful. The dental hygienists were gentle and knowledgeable. Dr Park was kind, thorough, and answered all of my questions. I'll be back!

Dr. Park has a wonderful manner with her patients! I feel very fortunate to have her as my dentist. Her hygienists and office staff are very competent and kind. I would go nowhere else.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

I've been a patient for 3.5 years. Today I got a tooth pulled. I am not proud of that. Dr. Park gave me options today that included allowing her to pull it or go see an Oral Surgeon. There was no way I was leaving her office when I trust her so much. I was nervous but I trust her more than anyone I've ever trusted to complete dental work. I am very found of Dr. Park and how caring and gentle her care is with each patient. I was equally impressed when I walked into her office today. Dr. Park was personally calling a patient just to see how he was doing after a visit. I joked with her about that .... what Dr. calls just to check on you anymore. Very nice. Very much appreciated.

I picked this because it was close and was impressed with the polite professionalism I encountered. Loved that I did not have to wait, but also loved the massage chair to relax tired back muscles. I felt the cost of procedures was a little on the high side...

One of the best dental clinics I've been to thus far. I love the fact that they give an incentive (free tooth whitening) for good dental hygiene and their service is impeccable. I'm happy they actually went over the x-rays and pictures they took of my teeth to give more knowledge of what they look for in x-rays. I'm so happy I found them!
