Dental sealants fill in the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, an area where food particles commonly get caught and cause cavities. Dr. Foreman can apply sealants quickly with minimal preparation, effectively protecting teeth for years. Combined with proper dental hygiene, patients with dental sealants rarely get cavities.

Fluoride is a mineral that protects teeth from decay and even helps reverse the early stages of decay. Children and adults alike can benefit from fluoride exposure. Most toothpastes on the market include a safe and effective amount of fluoride, but Dr. Foreman also provides a more concentrated fluoride rinse after each professional cleaning to really fight off decay. Fluoride is routinely added local water supplies in small amounts as well.

Fluoride works in much the same way carbon strengthens iron to make steel.
