Fluoride treatments are one way to maintain optimal oral health. Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in water. It’s also added to many public water supplies in order to help prevent cavities and tooth decay.

Fluoride helps to harden the enamel on your teeth, making them more resistant to the acids that cause cavities. It also helps to reduce the amount of plaque buildup on your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film that contains bacteria that can damage your teeth and lead to cavities.

Fluoride Treatments

Though the use of fluoride-treated dental care products reduces an individual’s chances of developing various oral ailments, occasionally, professional fluoride application is necessary. For example, individuals with poor oral hygiene, active decay, lack of regular professional dental care, decreased saliva, or a poor diet may require professional fluoride treatments.

Fluoride applications are neither painful nor time-consuming. The process lasts for a few minutes and involves a dental care professional applying fluoride-containing gel, varnish, or paste to the tooth enamel with a small brush or swab.

Patients should refrain from eating or drinking for one hour after fluoride application so that the fluoride is able to fully absorb into the enamel.

If you’re looking for a way to help prevent cavities and keep your smile healthy, fluoride treatments may be right for you. To learn more about our dental services or to schedule an appointment, contact Berthoud Dental Care today!
