Preventive Treatment

Preventive Treatment

Preventive treatment options for tooth decay include tooth brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, use of fluoride supplements (e.g. fluoride tablets) and application of dental sealants and topical fluorides which we provide at iDental clinics.

Dental sealants are applied to form a physical barrier that prevents growth of bacteria and accumulation of food particles in the grooves of back teeth. Several sealant materials are available: The main types in use are resin-based sealants and glass ionomer cements.

Fluoride varnishes are sticky pastes that are professionally applied to the teeth two to four times a year.
