Dental Sealants & Fluoride
For Children & Adults
Brushing and flossing, twice a day, are the basics for the prevention of dental disease. On some occasions, this is not enough. To help build teeth strength, dental sealants and fluoride may be recommended.
The application of ‘pit and fissure’ sealants is a safe and simple. After your teeth are professionally cleaned, the solution is placed on the tooth and dries naturally. The sealant is strong enough to withstand the forces of chewing and typically lasts a few years before reapplication is indicated. This procedure can be used for children and adults.
For many children, fluoride treatments help in preventing cavities and decay. Children’s Oral Hygiene can sometimes be challenging. This, combined with their needs for sugary sweets can make it difficult to have strong teeth, fluoride is the extra help needed to ensure healthy teeth.
Dr. Greeson will discuss these options as during your first visit to Greeson Dentistry.
