Quick, Painless Decay Prevention?

If you 're like most parents, preventing your children from ever getting a cavity is a priority. Having sealants applied to the teeth, as a preventative measure, is the best option. At our office, Dr. Bertolini uses high powered magnification and prepares all sealant sites with a special decay detecting bur before applying the sealant to the teeth. The sealant forms a protective barrier on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and usually remain effective for five years or longer (depending on your chewing pattern)! These areas should be checked at your regular hygiene appointments!!
Here are some snack alternatives which Dr. Bertolini recommends to help reduce decay when combined with sealants and fluoride:
Peanut butter, popcorn, fresh vegetables, fruit, yogurt, dry (unsweetened) cereal or granola, cheese, and xylitol containing gum/ mints.
