Cavity prevention involves reducing or even eliminating the chance of decay affecting a specific tooth. Cavity prevention is ideal for both adults and children.

What makes you a good candidate for Cavity Prevention?

Most patients who feel they will benefit from cavity prevention methods are viable candidates for the procedures available. Some of the most common types of preventative measures include sealants, fluoride treatments, product recommendations and oral hygiene technique demonstrations. We can help with cavity prevention concerning the entire family. We are here to help you maintain a healthy and happy smile that you can trust for life.

What happens during the procedure for Cavity Prevention?

Because there are a variety of preventative options available, the specific type of procedure being done is specific to each option. It is important to have a consultation and examination prior to choosing a preventative treatment. If sealants are utilized, a clear liquid is brushed and cured onto the teeth to form a protective layer. For fluoride treatment, the liquid is brushed onto the teeth to help protect the enamel and strengthen the inner dentin. We can help you to find the treatment that is best for you. We are able to provide cavity prevention geared for the whole family. If you are interested in cavity prevention either for yourself or a family member, contact our office today so that we can better assist you with this option.
