Dental Sealants

Once a child’s back teeth come in, they are extremely vulnerable to cavities because their location makes them difficult for little hands to brush, plus their rough surfaces easily trap plaque and food particles. Fortunately, a sealant is an easy way to keep this part of the teeth protected and stop decay before it even begins. A thin layer of composite resin is applied to the enamel, and then it is hardened into place with a curing light, literally sealing the tooth off from anything that could cause damage.

Fluoride Treatments for Children

Fluoride is great for patients of all ages, but it’s especially helpful for children who are still learning to brush/love sugary treats and drinks. When exposed to the enamel, fluoride actually replaces the minerals that have been removed by harmful plaque and acids, virtually reversing the process of decay. In addition to having your child use a fluoridated toothpaste, we can also give them a topical fluoride treatment at their regular checkups to give them an extra boost of cavity protection.
