Fluoride is a natural mineral that is found in water. It effectively prevents tooth decay by strengthening tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria. Fluoride treatments are
an important part of preventive dental care for patients of all ages.It is important to remember that fluoride is only effective when used as part of a comprehensive oral healthcare routine that includes regular brushing and flossing.
At Swartout Dental, we offer dental sealants as one of our general dentistry services. Sealants are a great way to protect your teeth from cavities and decay and help make them look their best.

Our comprehensive periodontal care process includes a detailed examination, during which we use a small mirror to look for any signs of gum disease. We will also measure the depth of any pockets around your teeth using a periodontal probe. If we find any areas of concern, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to restore the health of your gums.
