Fluoride is an element that is known to naturally prevent cavities. In fact, fluoride speeds up the re-mineralization of your child’s enamel—making it stronger than ever!
There are many benefits your child will receive after getting fluoride treatment such as:
- Protection against sugar
- Higher resistance to plaque
- Reduced chances for tooth decay
During your child’s fluoride treatment, we will apply a fluoride gel or varnish to their teeth. The fluoride varnish will be applied with a small brush and hardens when it comes in contact with saliva. That way, your child won’t be able to lick away the fluoride after treatment. Application only takes a few minutes — so it’s super quick and easy!
Dental sealants are another great way to effectively prevent cavities in your child’s mouth! Sealants fill the grooves of your child’s back teeth, to avoid the onset of cavities. The back teeth are the most common place cavities develop, because this is where food particles build up. Sealants enrich your child’s back teeth from damage and decay!
