Topical Fluoride Application

Highly concentrated topical fluoride is directly applied to your tooth surface.

Dental fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making your enamel more resistant to acid attacks. It also reverses early decay. It is usually recommended in children who are prone to tooth decay.

 Pit and Fissure Sealants

Using a clear or opaque resin material, it is applied to the pits and fissures of the teeth where decay usually occurs.

This serves as a barrier or protection from bacteria and food. Sealants are often applied as soon as the first permanent teeth start to come through. This is usually between 6 and 7 years of age. The rest are usually sealed as soon as they appear which can be any time between 11 and 14 years of age.
