Fluoride Treatment and Sealants in Lansing
Extra Protection in between Visits
Are your teeth more susceptible to the corrosive effects of bacteria? Then the next time you're visiting our Lansing dental office for a regular exam and cleaning, we may recommend extra preventive care with fluoride treatments. Small amounts of fluoride strengthen the enamel on teeth by attracting beneficial minerals. That’s why it’s added to toothpastes. Enjoying good oral health means having teeth that can stand up to the corrosive effects of bacteria.
Dental sealants are another excellent preventive service. They work in a significantly different way, though. Unlike fluoride treatments, which come as a liquid rinse, dental sealants are applied directly to the chewing surfaces of teeth and then are hardened to form a thin plastic layer. This layer physically protects teeth from coming into contact with destructive, decay-causing bacteria. As a result, patients can look forward to enjoying better protection from cavities.
In many cases, dental sealants are used with children because they're just learning how to properly brush, but adults can also benefit from using them. Dental sealants take very little time to apply and last for years. Enjoy better protection for your smile in between visits to our Lansing dental office with simple but effective dental sealants.
