Fluoride & Sealants in Naperville
Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings are all important aspects of preventing cavities and tooth decay. However, fluoride treatments and sealants provide additional protection to help patients of all ages avoid cavities. Naperville Family Dental offers fluoride treatment and sealants for adults and children.
We typically apply fluoride treatment following a regular check-up and cleaning. The treatment is quick and comfortable, giving you months of enhanced cavity protection in just a few minutes, and all you have to do afterward is avoid eating or drinking for half an hour.
We provide fluoride treatment for kids and adults, using the correct amount of fluoride for safe and effective protection. The fluoride treatments we provide to Naperville families help reduce cavities and the likelihood for a dental filling appointment in the future.
Dr. Don Jonker and the team at Naperville Family Dental provides patients with a wide range of modern dental procedures, including dental sealants. Sealants can give even greater cavity protection than fluoride and are suitable for both children and adults.
The treatment is simply the application of a protective layer to the deep grooves of posterior teeth. In children particularly, these are the teeth that are most likely to develop cavities and require fillings because their broad surfaces carry most of the impact of chewing.
The sealant is thin but durable, providing up to several years of significantly improved cavity protection. The application process is fast and comfortable: our team applies the sealant with a brush and then cures it with a specialized light.
If you’re already a patient with us, ask about fluoride treatments and sealant options for your next regular check-up and cleaning. If you’re a new patient, the team at Naperville Family Dental will be happy to book you an appointment for any of your dental needs.
