Preventing a dental issue is always preferred to treating a dental problem after it arises. Because of this, Dr. Tammy Perison and our team provide preventive dentistry in West Seneca, New York. These services, paired with proper dental hygiene practices at home, will help you to maintain ideal oral health.
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Our dentist recommends that you and your family visit us at least every six months for a professional teeth cleaning. Our hygienist will thoroughly clean all surfaces of your teeth.
Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in many foods and water. Dental fluoride is often applied to the teeth during the teeth cleaning appointment. Fluoride, which can be applied as a gel, foam, or varnish, strengthens the tooth enamel against decay.
Dental sealants can be placed on the molars or premolars of adults and children who do not have decay or fillings in the back teeth. Dental sealant is a material that is painted onto the back teeth to seal plaque and food particles from entering the crevices of the back teeth.
