Shielding Your Teeth From The Very Start

Children, in particular, experience significant advantages from fluoride treatment. As their adult teeth emerge, these treatments play a crucial role in combating tooth decay through a process known as remineralization. The acids present in plaque and certain foods have the potential to erode tooth enamel by depleting essential minerals. By undergoing fluoride treatment, this process is halted and reversed, resulting in stronger tooth enamel that is highly resistant to decay.

Why Opt For Sealants And Fluoride?

Reduce tooth sensitivity

The enamel is just the outter-most layer of a tooth. Underneath the enamel, a tooth is made up of dentin, pulp and nerve. Dentin helps support the structure of your tooth but it can’t protect the nerve of the tooth from hot and cold or acid and sticky foods. If the enamel becomes thin and worn, teeth will become sensitive. Fluoride and sealants keep the enamel in tip-top condition so that it can continue to protect your sensitive dentin from the elements.

Prevent and reverse decay

Worn enamel can continue to decay until a cavity forms. In addition to causing tooth sensitivity, exposed dentin comes with the added risk of infection which can be extremely painful and may require a root canal to save the tooth. Rebuilding enamel with fluoride treatment and shielding problem areas from plaque build-up helps to prevent decay and even strengthens teeth.

Save money in the long run

An ounce of prevention now is worth a pound of cure tomorrow. Fluoride and sealants are a relatively inexpensive treatment and will prevent the need for more costly procedures that would be required if tooth decay is allowed to progress.

Dental Sealants

The biting surfaces of molars have plenty of grooves and fissures that can easily trap acidic plaque or food particles which may be difficult to clean. When children get new molars, dental sealant can be used to keep gunk out, protect their natural teeth and prevent decay. Dental sealants provide a protective shield for those vulnerable areas.
