Fluoride is a colorless, naturally-occurring mineral that can be found on the Earth’s surface. It can be found in solid, liquid and gas forms. When applied in small doses, fluoride has been proven to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay.
A fluoride treatment at our office takes just a few minutes. The new generation of fluoride varnishes allows you to eat and drink right away. Depending on your oral health or our recommendation, you may be required to have a fluoride treatment every three, six, or 12 months. You may also be prescribed an at-home fluoride product such as a mouthwash, gel, antibacterial rinse or a prescription strength toothpaste.
When choosing your own at-home fluoride product (such as toothpaste or mouthwash), always check for the American Dental Association’s (ADA) seal of acceptance. Products marked with the ADA seal of approval have been carefully examined by the ADA and approved based on safety and effectiveness. From infant stage to adulthood we want you to take care of your teeth and smile bright with dental fluoride treatments!
