Preventative Dental Care
Tooth decay — particularly on the biting surfaces of the back teeth — is a problem among children, adolescents, and adults.
As a pediatric & family dentist in the Kansas City metro area, we provide full preventative dental care, including dental sealants and fluoride varnish.
These preventative measures will help you keep your smile healthy and white for years to come.
Dental sealants are a form of preventative dental care involving the use of a thin plastic coating that is painted onto the pits and grooves of the back teeth. The dental sealant protects the tooth by keeping tiny particles of food and bacteria out of the pits and grooves where cavities commonly start. Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years. The process to apply dental sealants is simple and painless, making them an ideal form of preventative dental care.
This type of fluoride strengthens the teeth by making the enamel more resistant to acid attack from plaque. This form of preventative dental care is lasting and effective. The fluoride varnish we use remains on the teeth for hours even though the patient is allowed to eat and drink right after its application. Fluoride varnish is safe for our patients.
