Fluoride treatments are a great way to reduce the risk of developing cavities. They are often done for kids, but can be used in patients of all ages. In this treatment, one of our hygienists will apply a fluoride-rich paste or gel to your teeth, leave it in place for a few minutes, then rinse the compound away. The fluoride helps strengthen your teeth and reduces the risk of developing cavities.
Sealants use a liquid resin to prevent the formation of cavities. We will apply the clear resin to your rear teeth. Then, the resin is hardened using a UV light, which creates an invisible, durable barrier. This barrier prevents bacteria, acid, and food particles from contacting the enamel directly, halting the formation of cavities.
