Preventative Dental Treatments

Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that can be applied over the chewing surfaces of back teeth. It forms a protective layer that keeps food particles and cavity-causing bacteria out of the tooth.

While dental sealants are typically recommended for children, adults can benefit from them as well. Sealants protect teeth against decay for three to five years and are a great option for patients who are prone to cavities.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen enamel and prevent tooth decay. It’s found in water and many foods. It’s also added to toothpaste and mouth rinses.

Dentists may recommend fluoride treatments during regular checkups. Kids between the ages of 6 months and 16 years benefit most from fluoride treatments. 

Dental Exams

During a dental exam, the dentist will examine the teeth for signs of decay. They will also check the gums for redness and swelling and check for signs of gum disease. The dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening.

Cleanings and exams are important because they allow the dentist to address dental problems early when they are easier and less expensive to treat. If you keep up with your preventive dental treatments, like cleanings and exams, you could also reduce the risk of other health problems, such as heart disease and diabetes.


Regular dental cleanings performed by a dentist or hygienist are essential in preventing tooth decay and gum disease. During a cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist thoroughly cleans the teeth, removing any plaque buildup. They will also recommend an at-home routine to keep the teeth clean between appointments.
