Preventative Dentistry

Sealants

A sealant is a clear or white plastic coating that is placed on the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars to help prevent tooth decay.

Preventative Mouthguards

A mouthguard is like a seatbelt for your mouth. It will prevent cuts to your lips, tongue and the inside of your cheeks. It cushions any blow to your mouth, which can help reduce damage from a concussion, and it will protect against getting a broken jaw. Wearing a mouthguard is less expensive than repairing a broken tooth, and, of course, it helps keep your teeth in your mouth.

Fluoride

Fluoride prevents decay in children and adults. It is especially important for children 6 months to 16 years old to get enough fluoride to protect their teeth. However, adults may need to add fluoride to their preventative appointments or their daily routine depending on their oral health requirements.
