An ounce of Prevention is better than a pound of cure! Preventive treatment plays a very important part to enhance the oral health especially of a child. At City Dental Hospital we not only treat you for you ailments but also ensure to protect you from the hidden enemies of your teeth. The main preventive treatments include.
- Fluoride therapy
In this procedure the patient undergoes sittings in which fluoride gels and varnishes are applied to the teeth which help in enhancing the decay resistance of a tooth. Fluoride gels are available in range of flavors making it pleasant for the child to undergo the procedure
- Pit and Fissure sealants
This procedure is done after your baby gets its first tooth. Tooth coloured or transparent fillings placed in the decay-prone area of the teeth hence eliminating chances for decay in the future. These fillings are also available in a range of colors like pink, blue, green, etc to make the child happy by letting it carry its favorite colour!
Fillings are done to protect the tooth from the initial damage which occurs due to decay of the tooth. At City Dental Hospital we advice our patients to get only tooth coloured fillings as metallic fillings have a disadvantage of developing decay again and then progressing for root canals which has been recorded in many studies.
