What are Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride is helpful in strengthening and protecting your teeth. Without it, your teeth are more vulnerable to decay and other dental problems. If you don’t already get enough fluoride in the dental products you’re using or the water you’re drinking, we’ll recommend additional fluoride treatment. These treatments can be done in our office and take just seconds to apply.
Why are Fluoride Treatments needed?
The reason you may need or want fluoride treatments is because you’re not getting enough of it through the products you’re using. These treatments are especially beneficial for children who may not have the best brushing and eating habits. If you’re looking for a way to further protect your teeth, fluoride treatments are incredibly beneficial to your oral health. You can request and have the treatments applied at virtually any of your dental appointments.
Who is a candidate for Fluoride Treatments?
We can examine your teeth to determine if you’d benefit from fluoride treatments. If you are susceptible to tooth decay or if you already have quite a lot of fillings in your mouth, these treatments might be the best choice for you. Likewise, if you’re a parent or guardian looking to strengthen your child’s smile, treatment is easy and noninvasive. We can provide you with fluoride treatment at any and all of your future dental appointments.
What happens during Fluoride Treatments?
In order to apply fluoride to your teeth, we’ll dry and clean the teeth. The liquid fluoride is then brushed over the teeth. You will be instructed to avoid eating or drinking anything for a short while to prevent the fluoride from being washed away. Fluoride treatments are incredibly beneficial to your oral health and can prevent against tooth decay. The treatment can prevent the need for eventual fillings, root canals and even full extractions due to the fact that your teeth have decayed or have become damaged without the help of these treatments.
