Preventing disease is one of the most important aspects of pediatric dentistry.
Preventing disease is one of the most important aspects of pediatric dentistry. While prevention certainly begins with practicing proper oral hygiene, maintaining a healthy diet and visiting our office regularly, there are some treatments we can administer that help strengthen teeth to prevent dental injuries and tooth decay. Two of the most common preventive treatments include the administration of fluoride and the application of dental sealants.
Tooth enamel is made of minerals, and when exposed to strong acid, its mineral content (and strength) can be stripped away. A naturally occurring mineral, fluoride is scientifically proven to strengthen teeth by attracting minerals to the surface of tooth enamel, which will ultimately help replenish lost mineral content. Strong, healthy tooth enamel is key in protecting teeth against cavity causing bacteria. Fluoride treatments are quick and easy and involve simply applying a fluoridated varnish or gel to the teeth.
Dental sealants are another preventive method for protecting teeth from bacteria and decay. Using a disease-resistant, plastic compound, sealants are applied over the pits and grooves of the teeth and quickly hardened with a curing light. This ensures that the biting surfaces of the teeth are more protected against damage and harmful bacteria.
Receiving fluoride treatments and/or dental sealants are non-invasive and cost-effective. If decay does form, our dentists can treat dental caries with restorations like fillings or crowns. During all types of treatment, we utilize anesthetics when necessary to promote comfort and relaxation.

I'm so happy to have found Dental Depot. Every staff member I've encountered from the front desk to the dentist have been very kind, personable, and reassuring.

I had a dental emergency and i called dental depot on Aubrey and they were able to schedule an appointment for me within a few hours. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The doctor Mr.Randhawa was very kind and professional and he carefully explained my situation and my procedure options. His assistant was also very sweet and helpful and they all patiently answered any questions i had. I highly recommend this dental office .Rosie N.1/02/2021
