Our dentists may recommend a fluoride treatment if your child’s teeth are prone to cavities, as this mineral helps promote and protect enamel. Fluoride is a natural mineral and can be found in many foods and water supplies. While your child will receive some fluoride from their diet and from brushing with fluoridated toothpaste, a professional fluoride treatment can strengthen their tooth enamel further to help prevent tooth decay.

How Fluoride Works

As your child eats and drinks, the bacteria, sugars, and acids in their mouth attack the tooth enamel, demineralizing it and making your child susceptible to cavities. Fluoride works by remineralizing tooth enamel and strengthening it against the decay-causing factors in the mouth. Fluoride also strengthens teeth as they develop to keep them healthy.

When you bring your child to our office, our doctors will check their fluoride levels to determine if fluoride treatment is necessary. If your child would benefit from a fluoride treatment, our dentists can provide it in just a few minutes as part of their regular dental visit. Fluoride treatments are available in the form of gel, varnish, or foam.

If you have any questions about fluoride treatments or wish to schedule your child’s appointment with our friendly doctors, contact our office today.
