At our dental office, we offer fluoride treatments to help protect the health of your teeth.
Fluoride is a mineral that is found naturally in many foods and water sources, and is proven to be an effective way to help prevent tooth decay and cavities.
Fluoride treatment is a common dental procedure recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) used to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water, soil, and some foods, and is also added to many toothpaste and mouthwash products.
During a fluoride treatment, a concentrated fluoride solution is applied to the teeth using a brush, swab, or tray. The fluoride is then left on the teeth for a few minutes to allow it to penetrate the enamel and strengthen it.
Fluoride treatment is particularly beneficial for children who are still developing their teeth and are more prone to cavities. However, adults can also benefit from fluoride treatment, especially those who have a history of cavities or who are at higher risk for developing them.
In addition to in-office fluoride treatment, many dentists recommend using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash at home as part of a regular oral hygiene routine.
Our team of experienced dental professionals can help to determine which type of fluoride treatment is best for you or your child.
