What are Fluoride Treatments?
The majority of dental-related products available on the market right now contain fluoride. Fluoride can even be found in many public water sources that you may drink on a regular basis. Fluoride is beneficial in that it protects and strengthens teeth. We are able to provide you with additional treatment that can aid in preventing tooth decay and other dental problems.
Why would Fluoride Treatments be needed?
The reason you might benefit from or need fluoride treatments is because your teeth are more prone to tooth decay. Fluoride can be used to further protect and strengthen your teeth, eliminating the need for more aggressive treatment. For children, we often recommend fluoride as a way to prevent early cavities. This can help to keep your children’s teeth healthy, strong and vibrant.

Who is a candidate for Fluoride Treatments?
Most of our patients are good candidates for fluoride treatments. These treatments are safe and incredibly effective at the protection they offer. However, children and those who do not use fluoridated dental products are the best candidates for treatment. We can examine your teeth to determine if these treatments are the right choice for you.
What happens during Fluoride Treatments?
The fluoride treatment process is quick and easy, taking just seconds in our office. We brush a clear fluoride varnish over the teeth while you’re sitting comfortably in the dental chair. You should avoid drinking and eating for about an hour following the procedure. We typically apply these treatments in conjunction with other appointments. For example, most patients having fluoride added to their teeth will have the work done when coming into the office for a cleaning and exam. These treatments are ideal for both adults and children alike. Our goal is to provide you with a healthy and full smile that you’ll have for life. Fluoride can help in preventing the need for fillings, root canals and extractions due to tooth decay.
