Cleaning the tight spots between your teeth, or brushing the hard to reach areas of your mouth isn’t easy. Sealants are one of the most common dental procedures which offer another layer of protection against decay, and are often applied to children’s teeth once the permanent set have erupted. When a sealant is applied to a tooth, plastic resin fills the grooves on the surface of the tooth, smoothing them out and making them less susceptible to plaque buildup.
Fluoride helps to prevent cavities, ward off decay, and prevents plaque build-up. It also restores essential minerals to the enamel of the teeth. A fluoride treatment is quick and takes only minutes in the office. After receiving fluoride, you shouldn’t eat or drink for at least thirty minutes, to give the teeth time to absorb the treatment.
