Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, clear coatings that are applied to the surface of your tooth to protect it from tooth decay. Dental sealants are ideal for children or teens that do not have restorations on their teeth.

A dental sealant is applied to the surface of the tooth to prevent germs and debris from getting trapped in the groves of the tooth. The application of dental sealants is a very short and simple process. When paired with proper professional and at-home dental care, sealants can be a very effective way to prevent decay. After a routine cleaning, the tooth is dried and the dental sealant is painted on the tooth and sealed. Sealants are very discrete and are usually undetectable.

If you are interested in sealants or wish to set up an appointment, please contact our dentist in Lebanon.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatments are great in the prevention of tooth decay and cavities because it helps strengthen the teeth. Generally after your cleaning, our dentist will be able to recommend whether fluoride treatment is right for you. Once fluoride is applied, we suggest not eating, drinking or smoking for at least 30 minutes. You can also use toothpaste or mouth rinses containing fluoride at home.
