What Is Fluoride Treatment?
Fluoride treatment is a protective coating that is applied to your teeth by your dentist. This perfectly safe varnish then acts to help stop cavities right in their tracks and prevent new ones from forming.
However, our dental office isn’t the only place where you can treat your smile to the protection of fluoride. There is also fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinse that can be prescribed or bought over-the-counter.
What Are the Benefits of Fluoride Treatment?
Fluoride treatments provide a wide array of benefits for both infant, child, and adult patients alike. The three biggest benefits of fluoride treatment include:
- Prevents tooth decay
- Speeds remineralization
- Disrupts acid erosion
When Should I Get Fluoride Treatment?
You can undergo fluoride treatment at any age. However, the best time for fluoride treatment is while primary and permanent teeth are developing, which is typically between the ages of 6 months and 16 years.
Don’t go another day without protecting your teeth. Contact Family Dentistry of Boynton Beach for more information about fluoride treatment or to schedule your appointment today.
