Why do you need fluoride treatment?

Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps protect your teeth from cavities and decay. It works by strengthening the enamel, the outer layer of your teeth, and making it more resistant to acid and bacteria. Fluoride also helps repair early signs of tooth decay by remineralizing the weakened areas of your enamel.

Why do you need fluoride treatment?

Even if you brush and floss regularly, you may still be at risk of developing cavities, especially if you have one or more of the following factors:

Fluoride treatment can help prevent or slow down the progression of cavities by providing extra protection to your teeth. It can also reduce the need for costly and invasive dental procedures in the future.

How is fluoride treatment done?

Fluoride treatment is a simple and quick process that can be done during your routine dental exam. No extra appointment is necessary. Your dentist or hygienist will apply a high concentration of fluoride to your teeth in the form of a rinse, foam, gel, or varnish. Depending on the type of fluoride used, you may be asked to avoid eating or drinking for 30 minutes after the treatment to allow the fluoride to fully absorb into your teeth.

What are the benefits and side effects of fluoride treatment?

Fluoride treatment has many benefits for your oral health, such as:

  • Reducing the risk of cavities by up to 25%
  • Prolonging the life of your natural teeth and dental work
  • Preventing gum disease and tooth pain
  • Improving your overall health and well-being

Fluoride treatment is generally safe and well-tolerated by most people. However, some people may experience some minor side effects, such as:

  • Temporary tooth sensitivity or discomfort
  • White spots or streaks on the enamel (fluorosis), which are usually cosmetic and harmless
  • Allergic reaction or irritation in rare cases

If you have any concerns or questions about fluoride treatment, please consult with your dentist before undergoing the procedure. They will assess your oral health and determine the best course of action for you.
