Fluoride can be an important part of preventing tooth decay in patients of all ages. Fluoride treatment can be done during your regular exam using fluoride varnish which is more highly concentrated and brushed into the teeth.
Sealants are a plastic resin material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth -- premolars and molars. They act as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids that contribute to dental decay. Toothbrush bristles cannot reach into the deep depressions and grooves of teeth and the sealant helps to protect these areas.
Sealants are easily applied and take only a few minutes for each tooth. Sealants will be checked at each appointment to make sure they are retained, and will generally last several years before reapplication is needed.
