Fluoride Application

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been scientifically proven to prevent and shield against tooth decay. While fluoride is found in water and food supplies, our office may suggest additional fluoride treatment if we feel it is necessary. In Royal Oak, Michigan, fluoride is most often used for children and adolescents who still have growing teeth. This is because fluoride bonds with growing tooth enamel to make it stronger. Fluoride also works for adult patients by acting as a protective barrier against food particles and bacteria that are prone to causing decay. Fluoride is generally applied topically onto your teeth through a:
  • Mouthwash
  • Gel
  • Varnish
  • Toothpaste

If necessary, systemic fluoride (fluoride in pill form) may also be suggested. Our team is committed to providing you and all of the members of your family with the treatments you need for a healthier smile. Generally, fluoride application is provided during your routine dental cleanings and exams.


Sealants are thin plastic coatings used to protect your child’s back teeth. These teeth, which act as the main chewing surfaces, can easily trap bacteria and food particles that cause decay. Your back teeth can also be hard to clean through regular brushing and flossing. Dental sealants help promote good oral hygiene while acting as a protective shield. They are ideal for preventing decay on your child’s newly grown permanent teeth or stopping decay from damaging primary teeth. Sealants are one of our easiest treatments.

Our skilled dentists and dental team at Lumon Dental can apply dental sealants in a matter of minutes. One of our dentists will clean the tooth and use a gentle bonding liquid if necessary to create a texture to the tooth’s surface. This promotes a stronger bond. The sealant is then painted onto the surface of the tooth and allowed to harden. We offer dental sealants in Royal Oak, Michigan, as part of our effort to protect your child’s smile and promote good oral hygiene for a lifetime. While mostly used for children, some teenagers and adults may also qualify for sealants.
