Fluoride treatments are a preventive measure aimed at strengthening tooth enamel and protecting against tooth decay. We offer fluoride treatments as part of our comprehensive dental care to promote optimal oral health.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps remineralize weakened tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria. It can also reverse early signs of tooth decay, preventing the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.
During a fluoride treatment, a concentrated fluoride gel, varnish or foam is applied to the teeth. This process is quick and painless, typically taking just a few minutes. The fluoride is absorbed by the teeth, reinforcing the enamel and enhancing its ability to resist acid erosion and cavities.
Fluoride treatments are especially beneficial for children and individuals at higher risk of developing tooth decay, such as those with dry mouth or orthodontic appliances. However, they can benefit patients of all ages by providing an extra layer of protection against cavities.
