What is Fluoride & Dental Sealants?

Fluoride treatment helps strengthens tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is the outer structure of teeth. Enamel protects softer internal structures like dentin from the bacteria that cause caries.

Tooth enamel is made of minerals, and is actually the toughest substance in the human body. Unfortunately, exposure to acid causes the stripping of enamel (of its mineralized content) and thus leaves teeth vulnerable to decay.

Dental Sealants:

Another method for preventing tooth decay. Teeth might have deep grooves and fissures, which are perfect spots for bacteria and debris to collect.

Certain teeth such as molars are more susceptible to developing cavities than others.

The dental sealant fills in these pits and grooves of teeth with a plastic compound that bacteria cannot penetrate.

The process is non-invasive and quick.

First, the biting surfaces of teeth are painted with liquid material. This material is then cured with a hardening light, allowing a sealant to ultimately serve as a barrier between cavity-causing bacteria and the tooth.
