Fluoride Treatment and Dental Sealants

Fluoride is a popular mineral in the world of dentistry. Along with calcium, almost everyone knows that fluoride is good for teeth. In fluoride treatments, we expose teeth to high concentrations of fluoride. This is beneficial because it helps fight off dental decay and strengthens teeth. The amount of fluoride used in these procedures is much higher than the fluoride found in toothpaste.

Dental sealant is made of composite resin. We apply a sealant to children’s teeth to protect them by sealing up grooves naturally found on teeth. Sealing these grooves off is done to prevent bacteria from using them as hiding spots. Fluoride treatments and dental sealants are used to prevent dental problems and keep your children’s teeth in excellent health.

Orthodontic Treatment

Crooked teeth and bite abnormalities are very common. The sooner these conditions are dealt with, the better outcomes achieved. Children’s bones are softer than adult bones. Straightening their teeth using braces or aligners is easier and more comfortable than straightening adult teeth.

We’ll need to examine your child’s oral cavity before determining the best treatment option. Dental x-rays might also be required to help us assess the state of their jawbones and teeth. There has been plenty of progress in orthodontics over the past few years. Thanks to clear aligners, we can now straighten teeth with comfortable devices.
