Fluoride Treatment

What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral that can be applied to teeth to help prevent cavities and strengthen enamel. Bacteria, sugars and acids constantly attack and demineralize the enamel on your teeth. Fluoride works to remineralize enamel, preventing cavities. Fluoride also strengthens teeth as they develop, making fluoride application extremely important for children as their teeth grow in.

Systemic Fluoride vs Topical Fluoride

Professional Fluoride Applications

Dr. Fisher normally recommends children routinely receive a fluoride treatment with every dental appointment (at least 2x’s a year). Sometimes, with high-risk of decay, he may recommend fluoride treatment more often.

Our team may also recommend a fluoride treatment if an adult patient is at high risk for tooth decay. Patients with dry mouth, root exposure, high levels of plaque or receiving cancer treatment could benefit from fluoride applications. Talk with your Doctor or hygienist if you would like more information on the benefits of fluoride treatments.
