Sealants are a fast and easy way of protecting your child’s teeth that act as barriers to cavity-prone areas. They are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and sometimes used to cover deep pits and grooves. Both primary and permanent teeth can benefit from sealants
The regular application of topical fluoride, early detection of orthodontic (bite) problems, and an evaluation for cavities are part of preventive dental health.
Bay College Dental Center offers comprehensive cleaning using scaling techniques to keep your gums healthy and avoid encountering tissue problems.
- Scaling with ultrasonic instruments is the process in which our dental team clean plaque from our patients’ teeth using an ultrasonic device that clears off the tartar and wash it away with a water spray.
- Scaling with hand-held instruments is the process in which our dental team use a dental scaler and curette to manually remove (scale) the plaque from our patients’ teeth. During the scaling process, our dental staff rely on touch to identify rough spots and areas of tartar build-up as they can’t see the plague.
- It is done using a slow speed hand piece with a soft rubber cup that spins on the end after cleaning. This process leaves the teeth shiny and smooth.
- To aid in the prevention of dental caries, we provide our patients different flavors of fluoride such as mint, peppermint, and strawberry. 60 seconds fluride application (Rinse or Gel)
In combination with oral examinations and routine cleanings, it is recommended that you also seek other preventative hygiene services such as gum disease treatments or even professional breath control treatments.
Fluoridation is generally (not universally) utilized by dentists and many other practitioners due to its effectiveness in warding off tooth decay. The U.S. Center for Disease Control lists water fluoridation as one of the “ten greatest public health achievements of the 20th century.” Fluoride therapy is now frequently practiced by using various methods. Many different therapies exist, ranging from the fluoridated toothpastes used at home to topical fluorides and rinses applied by dentists. Some municipalities also apply publicly sponsored programs such as fluoridation of water or salts. At home therapies also exist and can be broken into prescription and over-the-counter strengths.
