What is Cavity Prevention?
While the best line of defense against cavities is daily brushing and flossing, it can be hard to clean the molars, or the teeth in the back of your mouth. Plaque and bacteria can build up in the crevices of your teeth so Alliance Family Dentistry offers two forms of cavity prevention: fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral found in certain foods and beverages that can be applied to the teeth to strengthen the enamel against bacteria, reducing the chance of a cavity forming. Dental sealants, on the other hand, are thin coatings that can protect the molars from decay. To learn more about these cavity prevention treatments, call our Naples, FL office to book an appointment with Dr. Dasha Frias Landa.
What to Expect from Cavity Prevention Treatment
Professional fluoride treatments are usually done twice a year following your cleaning. We begin the fluoride treatment by applying it to your teeth as a gel, foam or varnish in order to penetrate your enamel and make it stronger and more resistant to cavities. The treatment will be kept on your teeth for up to five minutes so the fluoride can penetrate your enamel, then it can be removed. A suction tool may be used to help remove any excess fluoride since you may not rinse out your mouth, drink, or eat for at least half an hour after. Fluoride treatment can also minor and eliminate teeth sensitivity.
If you choose to get a dental sealant placed, we will polish the enamel and then dry it. Next, a thin coat of sealant will be applied and set with a special light. We recommend not eating sticky or hard foods for a few days to give the sealants time to settle into your molars.
Alliance Family Dentistry Reviews
I personally had a great time there, I enjoyed the music they played and really appreciated the consideration for their clients care. Their work was superb and the dentures came out very well. Now I have a nice smile to show for it so thank you ladies for all your hard work and help.
We are so grateful for the professional, warm welcome we received yesterday at Alliance Family Dentistry. Dr. Landa and her staff helped my son with his broken bracket behind his front teeth. I highly recommend this practice if you are local or just visiting like us.
Dr. Frias took her time explaining to me my dental health, and she answered my questions with such thought and care. I highly recommend. I’ve always preferred private practices over commercial offices because of the quality of treatment and this office did not disappoint!
It is amazing watching this real, talented and passionate dentist, succeeding in her practice as she does a wonderful work for her patients and friends. Now improving not only dental care, but also implementing beauty procedures. Go on Doctor!
