Sealants & Fluoride

Overview

The dentist often recommends dental sealants and fluoride supplements--especially for children, and also for people of all ages. These preventive measures can deter tooth decay.

Logistics

Dental sealants are clear plastic coatings painted onto back teeth. They act as barriers against the sugars and starches that cause tooth decay. For kids, teens, and adults, sealants on hard-to-clean back teeth can greatly reduce the risk of cavities. Dental sealants wear off over time, so they may need to be replaced periodically.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and deter cavity-causing bacteria. Adults and children benefit from professional fluoride rinses.
