Pit and Fissure Sealants
Sealants are protective plastic coatings, which are applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay. It is strongly recommended that complete and thorough dental cleaning is done prior to application because the plastic coating truly seals teeth.
Desensitizing agent applied to the tooth surface (exposed roots or thin enamel). Usually more than one application is needed to fully treat the sensitivity.
NEW! Caries Arrest: Silver Diamine Fluoride Application
It is a new way to treat caries in Canada. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) has been used for caries management in other countries for more than 80 years. In 2014 SDF was accepted by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and was approved by Health Canada in 2017.
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is an antimicrobial liquid that is able to reverse and arrest cavities in a non-invasive, fast, affordable, and painless manner. Without drilling, local anesthetic injections or general anesthesia SDF liquid is simply brushed on to the cavity that can stop current decay and also prevent new decay in the future.SDF stops progression of cavity and avoids reaching it to the nerve of the affected tooth. SDF is SAFE for adults and children 3 years and older.
