Protecting Your Teeth From the Very Start

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is especially beneficial for children. As their adult teeth emerge, fluoride helps fight tooth decay through a process known as remineralization. Acids from plaque and food can erode tooth enamel by depleting essential minerals. Fluoride treatment halts and reverses this damage, making tooth enamel stronger and more resistant to decay.

Dental Sealants

Molars have numerous grooves and fissures on their biting surfaces that can trap acidic plaque and food particles, making them challenging to clean thoroughly. Dental sealants can be applied to newly erupted molars in children to block debris, protect their natural teeth, and prevent decay. These sealants act as a barrier, safeguarding these vulnerable areas.

Why Choose Sealants and Fluoride?

The Canadian Dental Association supports using sealants for primary and permanent teeth based on a dentist’s assessment. Sealants are a key part of a preventive program that includes nutritional counselling, optimal fluoride exposure, good oral hygiene, and regular dental exams.

Reduce Tooth Sensitivity

The enamel is the outermost layer of a tooth, with dentin, pulp, and nerve beneath it. Dentin supports the tooth’s structure but doesn’t shield the nerve from hot, cold, acidic, or sticky foods. When enamel thins and wears down, teeth become sensitive. Fluoride and sealants help maintain strong enamel, protecting the sensitive dentin from these elements.

Prevent and Reverse Decay

Worn enamel can lead to decay and cavity formation. Besides causing tooth sensitivity, exposed dentin increases the risk of infection, which can be painful and may necessitate a root canal. Rebuilding enamel with fluoride treatments and protecting vulnerable areas from plaque buildup helps prevent decay and strengthens teeth.

Save Money Over Time

Investing in preventive care now can save you significant costs later. Fluoride and sealants are affordable treatments that help avoid the need for expensive procedures by stopping tooth decay before it worsens.

The Fluoridation and Sealant Process

Fluoride treatments are typically included in your child’s annual teeth cleaning and exam. Sealants are applied as needed, often after a new molar erupts or if the dentist identifies a problem area on the biting surface of a tooth.

Fluoride Treatment

Our fluoride treatment is more potent than store-bought options because it’s administered by our dental professionals. The most common form we use is foam or gel in upper and lower trays. This treatment is quick, taking only a few minutes after your teeth cleaning. For the best results, patients should refrain from eating or drinking for 30 minutes post-treatment.

Dental Sealant Application

Applying dental sealants is a simple and painless process that requires no drilling or freezing. The dentist will clean and dry the tooth, then apply a mild acidic gel to roughen the surface for a strong bond. After a few seconds, the gel is rinsed off, the tooth is dried again, and the sealant is carefully applied into the grooves. A special blue light is then used to cure the sealant. Once completed, your bite should still feel natural and comfortable.

Best Dentists I've ever had. I hadn't gone to the dentist for years, and neglected my teeth as a result. Thankfully Breslau Dental has helped a lot over the past year. Many fillings later and my oral health is in a much better position. The Dentists, Dental hygienists, and receptionists have all been awesome. I typically have a lot of anxiety when going to the dentist, but the staff here have helped a lot to ease those anxieties.
