Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride Treatments

You can have fluoride treatments done every six months or as needed.

What are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride is crucial in protecting teeth and preventing decay. By preventing decay from occurring, you’re preventing the need for fillings, root canals and extractions. If you don’t already get enough fluoride through the water you drink or the products you use, we offer high-quality fluoride treatments. Fluoride treatments are especially beneficial for kids, but they are just as advantageous to adults who are prone to developing cavities.

Why are Fluoride Treatments needed?

You may want or need fluoride treatments if you tend to get cavities regularly. You may already have a lot of fillings placed and want to take steps to protect your teeth. Children who don’t have the best brushing habits or who may eat a lot of sugary drinks and snacks will benefit from additional fluoride treatments. The treatments are easy, quick and done within minutes in our office.

Who’s a good candidate for Fluoride Treatments?

Everyone who wants to take precaution in protecting their smile can benefit from fluoride treatments. While fluoride treatments are most provided to kids, more and more adult patients are finding that they help the health of their smile immensely. We can perform an exam and help in determining if you’d benefit from fluoride treatments. Because the treatment takes just minutes, it’s safe and effective for anyone needing it.

What happens during Fluoride Treatments?

You’ll come into our office and be seated comfortably in one of our operatories. We then apply liquid fluoride to your teeth and provide you with instructions on how long to avoid eating and drinking. You can have fluoride treatments done every six months or as needed. For children, fluoride treatments can help to prevent decay from developing and the eventual need for fillings and extractions. This is an especially beneficial option for patients who may not get enough fluoride each day with the products they are using.
