Fluoride is a natural mineral that builds strong teeth and prevents cavities, and dentists have used fluoride treatments for decades to help protect teeth. This simple treatment supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums. During your fluoride treatment, you’ll receive a highly concentrated rinse, foam, gel, or varnish that will help protect your smile long after you leave our office.
Dental sealants are thin coatings that protect the chewing surfaces of your teeth from bacteria buildup that is caused by sugary foods and drinks. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars, and this treatment is especially useful to help prevent children from developing cavities. Call us now to schedule an appointment to protect your pearly whites with dental sealants!
Periodontal disease is a very common dental health issue that affects nearly half of adults in America, and it is simply caused by a lack of proper oral hygiene. This disease affects your gums, and if it isn’t treated in its early stages, the symptoms worsen and the disease becomes irreversible. Signs that you may be suffering from periodontal disease include tenderness and swelling of gums, bleeding while brushing teeth, dark or reddish gums, bad breath that won’t go away, and receding gum lines. If you notice these symptoms, call Pinnacle Family Dental right away to get judgement-free, quality care.
