Sealants and Fluoride: Not Just for Kids! Carrollton, GA

Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are often associated with children’s dental care, but they are highly beneficial for adults as well. Dr. Tejal Kakade, a dentist in Carrollton, emphasizes the importance of these services for maintaining adult oral health.

Dental Sealants for Adults

Dental sealants are not just for kids. Adults can also benefit from this protective measure, especially if they have deep grooves in their molars where plaque and food particles can accumulate. Sealants provide a barrier against decay-causing bacteria and can be particularly beneficial for adults who are prone to cavities or have a history of dental decay.

Fluoride Treatments for Enhanced Protection

Fluoride treatments are another preventive measure often thought to be exclusive to children. However, adults can greatly benefit from fluoride’s ability to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. Adults at risk of dental decay, those with gum recession exposing the roots of their teeth, or those with a dry mouth condition (xerostomia), which increases the risk of tooth decay, are excellent candidates for fluoride treatments.

When Are These Treatments Necessary?

At the office of Dr. Tejal Kakade, we may recommend these preventative dental services for adults who have the following:

  • High Risk of Cavities: Adults who are prone to frequent cavities or have a history of dental decay can benefit from the added protection of sealants and fluoride treatments.
  • Receding Gums: As gums recede, the roots of the teeth become exposed and are more susceptible to decay. Fluoride treatments can help protect these vulnerable areas.
  • Dry Mouth Conditions: A lack of adequate saliva, often caused by medications or medical conditions, can lead to increased tooth decay. Fluoride treatments can help counteract this risk.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
