Fluoride and Sealants

Fluoride and Sealants:
Go the Extra Mile in Cavity Prevention

For years, dentists have been preventing cavities by applying fluoride and sealants to teeth.

  • Fluoride hardens teeth making the tooth more resistant to acids, sugars and plaque bacteria in the mouth, helping to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride as gel, varnish or foam can be applied to the teeth.
  • Dental Sealants protect the susceptible areas by “sealing out” food and plaque. Dental sealants prevent cavities by acting like a barrier; a thin resin coating is applied to the deep cracks and canyons (pits) that are common on the biting surfaces of back teeth.

With fluoride protecting the teeth and sealants coating the surfaces, we have you covered.
