Fluoride & Sealants

Ensure the best in oral health for you and your family with additional preventative treatments, including fluoride and sealants. The team at Peninsula Dental Associates can help you remain free of cavities and tooth decay.

Fluoride Treatment Reduces Your Risk of Tooth Decay

The next time you come in for a routine checkup and teeth cleaning, we’ll offer the option for fluoride varnish treatment. This simple and fast treatment delivers lasting protection against cavities and tooth decay and is recommended for both children and adults.

Tooth decay starts when bacteria in your mouth secrete acid that washes away minerals in your enamel, such as calcium. This weakens the structure until cavities begin to form. Fluoride varnish takes action to restore those minerals.

When we apply the fluoride varnish to your teeth, fluoride will penetrate the enamel. There, it will aid in remineralization, helping your enamel regain its strength. Your teeth will be more protected from bacteria until those restored minerals are lost again.

Take Cavity Protection Further with Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive treatment gaining popularity in Silicon Valley and across the country. They provide additional protection for the molars at the back of your mouth, helping prevent cavities from forming in the pits and grooves of these teeth.

We’ll brush a thin layer of composite resin onto the chewing surfaces of those teeth and cure it using an ultraviolet light. This provides a layer of protection that bacteria can’t penetrate, preventing tooth decay and cavities. You don’t have to worry about any taste or texture changes, and the protection lasts for several years.

Dental sealants are especially recommended for children, who are more prone to develop cavities in their molars. However, this treatment provides robust protection for patients of all ages.

The team at Peninsula Dental Associates provides a full range of preventative dentistry treatments for patients in Foster City, Redwood Shores, Belmont, and surrounding areas. With fluoride treatment, dental sealants, and other routine care, you can protect your family’s long-term oral health and make dealing with cavities athing of the past.

Just wanted to thank Dr. Martin Phandl and his wonderful staff for making my recent dental appointment experiences the best they could be. Dr. Phandl couldn't have been more kind or patient. He made sure there was ZERO pain or discomfort, and that I was doing okay throughout my procedures.  They were such easy dental appointments, which for me, is saying a lot!! I was also very impressed with the new technology he uses. The handheld oral scanner was painless and showed 3D images in amazing detail. I would highly recommend Dr. Phandl.

Dr. Phandl is very easy to talk to and walks you through the process of what he is doing. After my recent visit he showed me the before and after shots of my tooth which was an absolute treat. I would recommend Dr. Phandl to anyone that wants a great dentist and the best service.

Dr. Phandl and his staff provide excellent service. I needed a cracked crown replaced and he was able to do so right away, all in house using CAD software and a 3D printer to create and install the replacement crown. Amazing care - thank you.
