Avoid Dental Issues by Taking Advantage of These Preventive Treatments

If you have the desire to avoid dental issues, then it’s best to take advantage of preventive dental treatments in Sacramento, California. Preventive dental treatments give you the ability to fight tooth decay, gum disease, and other major dental problems. Some treatments to take advantage of include:

Dental cleanings: Dental cleanings are vital because they offer the only treatment that can completely remove the plaque and tartar from your smile. This is important because if the plaque and tartar is left untreated, they can begin to create tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental sealants: Dental sealants are beneficial products that cover the entire surfaces of your teeth and protect them from dental issues, like tooth decay and tooth fractures. These sealants are clear, wafer-thin shells and they act as shields each and every day. They are generally recommended to children, but adults can also take advantage of them if they don’t have any dental fillings.

Dental fluoride treatment: Fluoride treatment is essential because it strengthens your teeth and gives them the ability to fight off tooth decay. When you come into our office for a cleaning and exam, we will provide a fluoride treatment that will typically come in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish.
