Patients may be aware that they have been asked to gargle fluoride, or that it is in their toothpaste, but they may not be aware of what it is and how it can be helpful. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was quoted as saying that fluoride is "one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century." This is due to the significant findings of fluoride protecting our teeth. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. Our teeth and uses this mineral to strengthen the enamel.
Dental sealants are a liquid plastic material that is painted onto clean, sterile teeth. In a brief time, they will dry and bond to the teeth. Once it hardens, the sealants will remain in place for several years acting as a barrier between the teeth and any food or bacteria. By creating a layer between the tooth and whatever bacteria it comes in contact with, we can help keep your teeth healthier, longer. Studies show that children with sealants experience significantly fewer cavities and bacteria causing damage.
