Fluoride treatments and Dental Sealants
Useful dental sealants
If your child is susceptible to tooth decay – dental sealants may be an effective way to prevent further damage to their teeth. While not completely effective at preventing cavities, it can delay further tooth decay and additional dental work.
Dental sealants will provide an acrylic shield that protects rear teeth and prevents bacterial infections. Typically, we recommend the use of sealants after the age of six and recommend that your children abstain from hard candy and sticky foods to prevent damage to the sealant.
Ask our dentists if a sealant option is right for your children.

Also, we can recommend a children’s fluoride treatment that they can use at home after they are done brushing their teeth.
