Our dentist and team place a strong emphasis on preventive dental care, including the vital role of fluoride treatment. We understand the importance of fluoride in keeping teeth healthy and are delighted to offer this preventive measure. By strengthening tooth enamel, fluoride treatment is a key element in our approach to help safeguard your teeth against cavities and decay.
Understanding Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride is a natural mineral that plays a vital role in dental health. It works by reinforcing the tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. This treatment is particularly beneficial for both children and adults, as it helps in the early prevention of tooth decay and can even reverse early signs of decay.
The Fluoride Treatment Process
When you come in for a fluoride treatment, you can expect a simple and quick process:
- Application: A high concentration fluoride gel, foam or varnish is applied to your teeth.
- Short Waiting Period: The fluoride needs to sit on the teeth for a few minutes to fully adhere and be effective.
- Rinsing: After the treatment, you will be asked to avoid eating or drinking for a short period to allow the fluoride to fully absorb.
Benefits of Fluoride Treatment
- Cavity Prevention: Significantly reduces the risk of cavities by strengthening tooth enamel
- Early Decay Reversal: Can help in reversing the early stages of tooth decay
- Suitable for All Ages: Beneficial for both children, whose teeth are still developing, and adults
- Quick and Non-Invasive: The treatment is fast, painless and non-invasive
