Fluoride is most commonly found in dental products, like toothpastes and mouthwashes. It is designed to protect and strengthen a person's teeth, making them less prone to developing cavities. Regardless of the amount of fluoride that you use each day, we offer professional treatments that can add further protection for your smile. Fluoride treatments are great for adult and pediatric patients alike.
There are a few reasons for needing fluoride treatments. First, you might benefit from treatment because you're more susceptible to decay. This is especially true among children and teens who might not necessarily brush and floss properly. For others, it's a way to strengthen their teeth along with using other methods and products at home.
We can easily determine if fluoride treatments are right for you with an exam. For children coming into our office, we may recommend that they have fluoride treatments as a way to keep their smiles looking their best. In truth, most of our patients can benefit from these treatments. You can have them done as often as they might be needed.
The treatment process will begin by having you sit in one of our comfortable dental chairs. We then work on cleaning your teeth before applying the fluoride. A liquid fluoride is then brushed over the teeth. You will be instructed on how to care for your teeth after treatment. For most patients, they'll need to avoid eating and drinking for about an hour to allow the fluoride to fully penetrate the teeth. You can have these treatments done as often as they are needed, as some of our patients have treatment done every single time that they come into the office for either a cleaning or checkup and want to further protect their smile.
