How fluoride treatment does help

Dental Sealants
Dental sealant is a thin, plastic covering painted on the biting surfaces of teeth – for the most part, the back teeth (the premolars and molars) – to anticipate tooth decay. The sealant rapidly bonds into the depressions and notches of the teeth, protective a defensive shield over the enamel of every tooth.

Despite the fact that brushing and flossing are the most ideal approaches to help fight depressions, yet it’s not in every case simple to clean every niche and crevice of your teeth – particularly those back teeth you use to bite (called molars). Molars are rough, uneven and a most spot for leftover food and cavity-causing bacteria stowaway. Sealants shield this weak area from tooth decay via “sealing out” plaque and food.

Prevent Cavities: – By behaving about as a physical boundary, a dental sealant can shield teeth from bacteria and decay. They are frequently applied to the molars, which are particularly vulnerable.

Establish Long-Term Dental Health: – Kids don’t generally brush and floss their teeth appropriately, which makes it simpler for cavities to create. Some additional security can establish the frameworks for good oral health later on.

How it works

Sealants works like a raincoats on your teeth. At the point when the cavity-causing bacteria that live in everybody’s mouth meet remaining food particles, they produce acids that can make openings in teeth. These openings are cavities. After the sealant has been connected it keeps those bits of food out and prevents bacteria and acid from settling on your teeth—simply like an overcoat keeps you perfect and dry during a storm. Since dental sealants are cost-effective, safe, and easily applied, there isn’t quite a requirement for other treatment. In case, your specialist may prescribe fluoride medicines to additionally strengthen your kid’s smile. While fluoride is a significant component of dental protection, it is not a replacement for dental sealants. Rather, the two work together: if sealants give physical protection, fluoride fortifies the quality of the normal tooth.
