Sealants and Fluoride Treatment
Brushing isn’t enough to clean the whole mouth. There are areas that your toothbrush can’t reach.
An ideal healthy tooth is cavity-free and strong. One way to give your child protection from possible tooth decay is through dental sealants.
Sealants are a safe and effective way to prevent cavities—particularly in hard-to-reach teeth such as the molars.
Sealants are plastic resins that are placed into the deep grooves of the tooth’s surface. By “sealing” the tooth, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective. While sealants are typically applied to children’s teeth, adults can also benefit from them.
Meanwhile, fluoride is vital in maintaining healthy smiles. It doesn’t only prevent the formation of cavities, but it also strengthens the teeth.

Premature baby tooth loss is common for kids. And it's okay! But when a tooth is knocked out, it leaves an empty socket. It can result in the shifting of surrounding teeth towards the empty socket. It is best to prevent this from happening to preserve good alignment.
What are space maintainers?
Space maintainers are orthodontic appliances used in pediatric dentistry. The primary function of these devices is to manage premature baby tooth loss. Maintainers also help prevent malocclusions (misalignment of teeth), overcrowding, and other orthodontic conditions.
They can ensure that the adult tooth erupts appropriately in its designated space.
There are various types of space maintainers that are specific for every need. To learn more about space maintainers, book an appointment with our office. Call our friendly staff today!
