Preventive Services

This is the cleaning of bacterial and calcified deposits around the erupted parts of your teeth.

Fluoride therapy:
A fluoride varnish affords up to six months of increased resistance to decay by hardening the enamel and roots of your teeth. This is recommended for children and adults who have either a history of decay within the past two years or a lot of restorative margins to protect. Fluoride can also decrease tooth sensitivity in selected cases.

We also offer a brush on fluoride for unusually cavity prone adults.

When indicated flowable resin bonded into the grooves of the teeth will prevent decay on the biting surface of back teeth. (click for more about sealants)
