Some of you may remember rinsing your teeth with fluoride in elementary school. Fluoride rinses are still important for children. Routine fluoride treatments are useful in the fight against tooth decay by helping teeth build resistance to decay-forming acids. Modern Dentistry offers this standard dental treatment to children.
Good oral hygiene – brushing and flossing daily – and a healthy diet are the best way to prevent plaque build-up in the mouth. But even the most thorough brushing does not always reach the deepest indentations in the back teeth (molars). Dental sealants are tough coatings that fill in these depressions, preventing bacterial formation that causes tooth decay and other damage. In a procedure that takes only a few minutes per tooth, our dentist coats and bonds a plastic sealant to the tooth. The sealants are long-lasting and extremely durable methods of preventing tooth decay and other dental problems.
