Preserve Tooth Structure at Shawnee Dental Office With Dental Sealants

SHAWNEE, KS--(Marketwired - October 26, 2015) - Dr. Mark Manroe, a leading preventive dentist in Shawnee, Kansas, is alerting patients to a treatment that can better protect molars against harmful acids and cavities.

Dental sealants, which are made from clear resin material, are placed on the biting surface of the molars to keep off acids and bacteria that cause dental decay. Dr. Manroe, who operates Dental Innovations, can place dental sealants for children and adults with molars that are free of decay.

“Most children and adults don't have sealants on their teeth, but they should,” Dr. Manroe said. “What is exciting about sealants is that you get to preserve your own natural tooth structure and save yourself from getting shots or having to do expensive dental work like fillings, crowns, root canals, tooth removal, etc.”

Patients can have durable dental sealants placed on each of their molars in about 10 minutes at Dr. Manroe’s state-of-the-art dental office. The sealants are fast, easy, completely pain-free and not visible.

Dental sealants, which can last five years or longer, not only take less time to place, but sealants also are significantly less expensive than fillings or other forms of restorative dentistry.

“This simple procedure benefits patients by preventing decay in the deepest grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where cavities are most common,” Dr. Manroe said. “Patients love to hear at checkups that they have no cavities, due in part to having dental sealants blocking the cavities from starting.”

Dental Innovations, 11221 Shawnee Mission Parkway, is a 5,800-square-feet office with 10 operatories and several amenities for patients. The Johnson County dental office is a leading provider in general dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, sedation dentistry and gum disease treatment.

Dr. Manroe graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 1991 and is a member of the Great Plains Study Club. He worked as an associate dentist before buying his own practice. Dr. Manroe has completed countless hours in continuing education, focusing on areas of dentistry like teeth whitening, crowns and bridges, composite fillings, gum disease treatment, porcelain veneers, tooth extractions and even sleep apnea treatment.

Dr. Manroe and his associate, Dr. Trevor Clemons, provide mini dental implants to help patients with thin jawbones to stabilize dentures. Implants not only stabilize oral devices but also help preserve the patient’s jawbone and provide optimal chewing force. Dr. Manroe also offers Lumineers porcelain veneers to fix gaps, chips or heavily stained teeth.

Dr. Clemons earned his undergraduate and dental degree from the University of Missouri in Kansas City. Like Dr. Manroe, Dr. Clemons is trained in crafting dentures, root canals and full-mouth reconstructions.
