Preventive General Dentistry for Special Needs Patients in Dallas, Fort Worth and North Texas
Maintaining Good Oral Health with Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments
To maintain good oral health, preventive dentistry should be prioritized. At Disability Dental, we offer dental sealants and supplemental fluoride treatments to defend teeth from the onslaught of tooth decay, which can lead to larger problems.
Dental sealants are thin plastic barriers painted onto back teeth. They aid in deterring bacteria from causing cavities in hard-to-brush areas of the mouth. The process of applying dental sealants is quick and easy. You do not have to worry about having the sealants removed, as they will dissipate over time.
Fluoride is a mineral that attracts other minerals to ward off tooth decay. While most public water systems in the Dallas – Fort Worth area are supplemented with fluoride, bottled water does not contain fluoride. Your special needs dentist at Disability Dental may recommend a fluoride supplement in the form of a varnish or mouth rinse.
Do not forget to schedule six-month checkups and cleanings, as well. As your special needs dentists, Disability Dental team will partner with you to promote a lifetime of good oral health.
