Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is a simple and painless procedure that involves the application of fluoride to the teeth to help prevent tooth decay and strengthen tooth enamel. It has been shown to have a significant impact on oral health by helping to remineralize areas of the teeth that have been weakened by acid attacks from bacteria in the mouth.

What diagnosis leads to fluoride treatment?

Fluoride treatment is necessary based on a variety of factors, including:

  1. If you have a history of cavities or other dental problems.

  2. Fluoride treatment is often recommended for children as their teeth are still developing and more susceptible to decay. However, adults can also benefit from fluoride treatment.

  3. Patients with dry mouth (xerostomia) have a higher risk of developing tooth decay because they do not produce enough saliva to help wash away bacteria and food particles from their teeth. 

  4. Patients who wear braces or other orthodontic appliances.

  5. Patients with gum disease are also at higher risk of developing tooth decay, as gum disease can lead to the erosion of tooth enamel. 

What is the procedure for fluoride treatment?

The procedure for fluoride treatment involves the following steps:

  • Step 1: The dentist will clean your teeth to remove any food particles or debris

  • Step 2: The dentist will isolate the teeth to be treated using a dental dam or cotton rolls to keep the teeth dry.

  • Step 3: The fluoride may be applied in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish by using a brush, swab, or tray. The fluoride will typically be left on the teeth for a few minutes to allow it to penetrate the enamel.

  • Step 4: Once the fluoride has been applied, it will be removed using suction or by rinsing the mouth with water.
