What are Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride treatments are a great way to keep your teeth strong and healthy. Fluoride treatments are incredibly easy and take just minutes in our office to apply. There is no age limit when it comes to who would benefit from fluoride. Both children and adults alike can both benefit from having these types of treatments done.
Why might Fluoride Treatments be needed?
The reason you might need fluoride treatments is because you need to find a way to completely protect your teeth. While many dental products have fluoride in them, these treatments are often a better choice for individuals wanting a more solid way to protect their smile. Fluoride can even help with instances of severe sensitivity, and it’ll help to rebuild enamel in a way that prevents tooth decay.
Who is a candidate for Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride treatments are ideal for most patients. In fact, while they’re more commonly done on pediatric patients, adults can benefit from these treatments as well. The process to apply fluoride takes just a couple of minutes. You can request these treatments at any time and for any reason.
What happens during the Fluoride Treatment process?
The first step is to apply a clear fluoride liquid over the teeth. This process takes a very short amount of time. You will be instructed to avoid eating, rinsing, drinking or brushing for about 30 minutes following the actual procedure. The goal of fluoride treatments is to fully protect the teeth and prevent tooth decay. These treatments can be done at any time and in conjunction with other procedures that you may be having done in the office. For our pediatric patients, applying fluoride is often a critical part of their checkup visits. You can request these treatments at any time and for any reason, and we will be happy to work with you in maintaining a full, healthy smile.
