Fluoridation of the water supply has helped to improve the dental health of countless children. For families who do not have fluoridated water, fluoride treatments in the dental office can help protect the teeth from caries and tooth decay. Application of fluoride treatment is an important part of preventative care. Having the right dental discovery trays can make the process significantly more comfortable for your patients. Kerr Dental offers dental discovery trays that allow for excellent fit and easy fluoride placement.
Fluoride supplementation has revolutionized dental preventative care. The fluoridation of city water supplies allows for systemic fluoride supplementation, but for people who do not have access to fluoridated water, the dental office is able to provide topical fluoride treatments. Fluoride treatments play a significant role in the prevention of dental caries and tooth decay. People with poor oral hygiene, eating disorders, drug or alcohol abuse, dry mouth, poor diet, existing fillings or tooth enamel deficits are at higher risk for developing caries and cavities, and may respond more favorably to in-office fluoride treatments. One of the most important dental accessories to dental care is the fluoride application tray. Dental discovery trays allow for easy application of topical fluoride treatment, but it is important to use trays that provide good fit and are easy to use. Kerr Dental is excited to offer a line of dental discovery trays that is easy to use and promotes patient comfort. The discovery trays contain a bonded dual foam insert that helps to force fluoride onto every surface of the tooth, ensuring even coverage. It comes in four sizes with color-coded foam; making it easy to grab the size you need. The different sizes allow for an excellent fit for all mouths, including young children with small mouths. The handles and hinged design make simultaneous placement and removal from both arches quick and easy. The foam insert is bonded to a hard outer shell, which allows the fluoride to spread evenly and interproximally as the patient bites down. These dental discovery trays are disposable, so you don't have to worry about cleaning or sterilization. They are available in convenient bulk packs of 100 trays. Kerr Dental has been serving the needs of dental professionals for over 100 years.
