Sealants and Fluoride Ottawa
Dental Sealants are plastic covers that are placed on the occlusal of molars and pre-molars. This keeps them safe from acidic materials due to bacteria activity is minimized. Hence, tooth decay is prevented. Many people complain that they experienced damaged teeth despite regular brushing and use of floss. As toothbrushes cannot breach all the grooves of our teeth, this is very much possible unless sealants are used for protecting them. Fluoride Varnish is a highly concentrated paste that is applied to the surface of teeth as it prevents decay and adds to their strength. It also helps to treat dentine hypersensitivity.
Dental sealants, usually applied to the chewing surface of teeth, act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria. Most often, the sealants are applied to the back teeth, e.g., premolars and molars.
