Fluoride Treatments and Dental Sealants in Statesville NC 28677

Efficient dental sealants

Young children are often susceptible to tooth decay and tooth sealants are an effective method to preserve their teeth and stop the harm of tooth decay. While a dental sealant cannot reverse the damages caused by tooth decay, it can stop decay in its tracks and has proven to be an effective treatment. Ask our friendly dentists at Iredell Pediatric Dentistry if sealants are right for your child.

Dental sealants form an acrylic-like shield that stops bacteria from infecting and damaging the rear teeth. Our expert dentists usually recommend sealants after the age of six when the rear molars are fully formed.

Schedule an examination today! Our professional dentists will be able to recommend sealants based on how the tooth has developed while it was below the gum line.
After a sealant is placed, it is recommended that your child abstains from hard candy and sticky foods as these can cause the sealants to dislodge. A missing sealant is not likely to be noticed by your child until their next dental visit, potentially increasing their chances of tooth decay.

Quick fluoride treatments

One of the best ways to preserve and protect your children’s growing teeth is through the regular use of fluoride. Fluoride protects the enamel of their teeth and promotes healthy tooth development. At the end of each regular cleaning, we will use a fluoride treatment to finish the cleaning process. We offer a variety of unique flavors that your children will love.

We also recommend regular use of fluoride at home and will provide samples for your children to use. A one-minute fluoride wash in addition to regular brushing and flossing will go a long way to preventing cavities and tooth decay.
