As our teeth develop they are covered with tiny pits and fissures, these areas perfect breeding ground for decay causing bacteria. An effective preventative approach to address this is to place an invisible fluoride coating onto these nooks and crannies to strengthen and protect the teeth against holes and decay developing as we grow.
After a prescription from the dentist our team of qualified dental hygienists can place these sealants in a pain free and simple procedure that is usually done alongside a routine hygienist appointment.
The dentist will be able to detect any areas or teeth he feels may benefit from this preventative measure at routine dental examinations.
