What are Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride treatments are designed to strengthen and protect teeth. We can provide this treatment for both pediatric and adult patients. Fluoride treatments are done quickly and can provide protection for teeth that would otherwise be susceptible to decay. Our goal is to provide fluoride treatment to you and your loved ones when it is most needed.
Why are Fluoride Treatments needed?
You may need or want fluoride treatment if you do not get enough fluoride each day. For patients who do not have fluoridated water or who may not use fluoride toothpaste, fluoride treatments can be especially beneficial. Children are suitable for this treatment option, as it protects vulnerable teeth. Fluoride is designed to prevent decay and strengthen teeth.
What makes you a good candidate for Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride treatments can benefit most patients. They are especially essential for patients who do not get enough fluoride on a regular basis. Your child may need fluoride treatment to protect against cavities and the need for fillings, root canals or full extractions. With the help of an exam and consult with Dr. Adkins, we can determine if you or your child would benefit from fluoride treatments.
What can you expect with Fluoride Treatments?
The fluoride treatment that you’ll receive is done quickly and easily. After your cleaning and exam, we can brush a specialized fluoride treatment onto the teeth. For children, this is done quickly and without them having to come back in for an additional appointment. We recommend fluoride treatments at each of your bi-annual appointments. This protects your teeth and makes them less prone to cavities. The treatment itself is effective and can prevent the need for more invasive procedures that are needed because of decay. If you have any questions regarding fluoride treatments, we welcome you to contact us or talk about this option at your next dental visit in our office.
