Every time you eat and drink, your teeth are vulnerable to sugars, acids, bacteria, and food debris. It’s important to protect your teeth from these substances with sealants and fluoride.
A dental sealant creates a solid, durable coating over the grooves of your molars to prevent cavities from forming in areas your toothbrush can’t reach. We recommend sealants on young children and adults as the easiest and most efficient preventive measure.
Fluoride is applied as a varnish over all of the teeth to stop cavities from developing. Decades of research demonstrate the power of fluoride to reduce the prevalence of decay, especially in children. We recommend that all of our young patients receive regular fluoride treatments as soon as their teeth erupt.
