FLUORIDE TREATMENT AND SEALANTS
Prevention is the best treatment option.
Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases to affect people worldwide and the number one long-term disease among children. One of the most effective means of preventing tooth decay is fluoride treatment and sealants.
Fluoride can be found in most over the counter toothpaste, and some mouth rinses. However, levels vary greatly and depending on each individual patient’s needs, additional fluoride may be indicated, based on diet, habit, and home care.
At Derby Dental, we may recommend a Fluoride Varnish at your check-up visits to help keep your teeth strong, and prevent against the attack of tooth decay.
Sealants can be a method used to prevent tooth decay from forming in the pits of grooves of baby teeth.
