Fluoride Treatment

Boost your oral health with our advanced fluoride treatments. Designed to prevent decay and strengthen tooth enamel, perfect for patients of all ages.

Fluoride treatments are a proven and effective method for strengthening tooth enamel and preventing decay. At Select Dental Office, we offer professional fluoride treatments as part of our comprehensive dental care services, helping patients of all ages maintain optimal oral health.

Why Fluoride Treatments Are Important

Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps rebuild and strengthen tooth enamel, the outer protective layer of each tooth. It's especially beneficial in:

  • Reversing Early Signs of Tooth Decay: Fluoride can help remineralize slight enamel erosions before they become cavities.
  • Preventing the Development of Cavities: Fluoride helps prevent cavities by making the tooth surface more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.
  • Enhancing Benefits of Brushing and Flossing: Regular fluoride treatments can enhance the decay-preventing effects of daily brushing and flossing.

What Happens During a Fluoride Treatment?

  1. Application: The fluoride, usually in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish, is applied to your teeth. It may be painted on or placed in a tray that you wear over your teeth for several minutes.
  2. Absorption: After the fluoride is applied, it’s absorbed into the enamel to help repair microscopic carious areas.
  3. Post-Treatment Care: You may be advised not to eat or drink for 30 minutes after the treatment to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride and help repair the microscopic carious areas.

Who Benefits from Fluoride Treatments?

While fluoride is important for the oral health of all individuals, certain people are particularly good candidates for extra fluoride treatment, including those with:

  • A history of frequent cavities.
  • A high intake of carbohydrates and sugar.
  • Poor oral hygiene habits.
  • Existing dental restorations such as crowns and bridges.
  • Orthodontic treatments like braces which can make cleaning teeth more challenging.
