Treatments To Lower Cavity Risks

Good at-home dental hygiene habits and having your teeth professionally cleaned every six months are the two best things you can do to reduce your risk for cavities and tooth decay.

To help protect our patients from tooth decay, we offer sealants and fluoride treatments.

What Are Dental Sealants? 

Dental sealants are an invisible film that we apply to teeth to keep bacteria and food particles off your enamel. This barrier protects harder-to-reach areas that are commonly overlooked during normal brushing and flossing.

What Do Fluoride Treatments Do? 

Fluoride is a mineral that helps teeth naturally recover from damage. These treatments help enamel reform before damage develops into a cavity.

Do I Need Extra Cavity Protection? 

Both children and adults can benefit from extra protection. Kids need time to develop their best hygiene habits, and these treatments help them learn while supporting them. Adults with issues like dry mouth, weak enamel, and certain health conditions can have a tougher time fighting decay. We’ll discuss these issues during your normal dental exams and cleanings and make recommendations on how best to protect your smile.

Are These Treatments Safe?

Fluoride is already in ADA-approved toothpastes and many tap water sources. Sealants are made from a substance that safely coats and protects teeth. We’ll help you determine if these treatments are right for you and your family.
