What are Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride can be found in both dental products and many public water sources. Fluoride is safe and effective when it comes to protecting and strengthening your smile. We offer special fluoride treatments that can be added to your teeth for an extra layer of protection. These treatments can be done on an as-needed basis or whenever you want to protect your smile further.
Why would Fluoride Treatments be necessary?
You might benefit from fluoride treatments if you aren’t using fluoride on a regular basis. You might be more prone to developing cavities and areas of decay, so fluoride can help to strengthen your teeth. We often recommend these treatments to children who don’t always have the best brushing or eating habits. The treatment itself takes just minutes in our office to apply to the teeth.
Who is a good candidate for Fluoride Treatments?
The best way for us to determine if fluoride is needed is with an examination. We can determine if and when you might need to have fluoride added to your teeth. Most patients can benefit from having this type of treatment. In fact, we often automatically add fluoride to our pediatric patients’ teeth as a way to keep them fully protected.
What happens during the Fluoride Treatment process?
The treatment process is quick and easy. We apply a liquid fluoride varnish to each surface of your teeth. This will help to prevent decay and strengthen your smile. Some patients benefit from fluoride if they have issues with sensitivity. We can apply fluoride in conjunction with other treatments and appointments. For example, we often apply the varnish after a cleaning and exam has been done. With regular treatments of fluoride done in our office, you are improving the health and strength of your smile in a way that will prevent the need for more invasive procedures and treatments later on.
