Our commitment to preventive dentistry is exemplified through two key treatments: Fluoride Treatments and Dental Sealants. Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is a natural mineral that plays a crucial role in strengthening tooth enamel and preventing tooth decay. Our fluoride treatments involve the application of a concentrated fluoride solution to the teeth. This process helps to remineralize and fortify the enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque and bacteria. Fluoride treatments are a quick and painless way to enhance your teeth's natural defense mechanisms, ensuring a strong and healthy smile for years to come. Dental Sealants: Dental sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. These back teeth often have deep grooves and fissures where food particles and bacteria can easily accumulate, leading to decay. The sealant acts as a barrier, sealing off these vulnerable areas and preventing the infiltration of harmful substances. The application of dental sealants is a non-invasive and painless procedure that provides an additional layer of defense against cavities, particularly in the hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. At Stanley R. McCardle, D.M.D. | Family Dentistry, we believe in the power of preventive care. By incorporating fluoride treatments and dental sealants into your oral health routine, you can proactively safeguard your teeth and preserve your radiant smile.
