Fluoride Treatments

INCLINE FAMILY DENTISTRY

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in the earth, air, water, and even in the human body. In dentistry, fluoride is known as nature’s cavity fighter. That’s because fluoride makes tooth enamel more resistant to acids that cause tooth decay. In addition to getting fluoride through fluoridated water and using toothpaste or mouthwash that contains fluoride, you can receive professional fluoride treatments here in our Lakewood, Colorado dental practice.

Why Get a Professional Fluoride Treatment

With fluoride-fortified products like toothpaste readily available, you may wonder why you should visit the dentist for professional fluoride treatments. The fluoride solution used in a dental office is much more potent and effective than fluoride from other sources.

Who Needs Fluoride Treatments

While fluoride treatments are an excellent option for anyone – from children to adults – certain individuals benefit more from professional fluoride treatments. For example, a professional fluoride treatment is recommended for those with:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Active tooth decay
  • Existing fillings or restorations
  • Braces
  • Poor nutrition
  • Eating disorders
  • History of drug or alcohol abuse
  • Dry mouth

How & When Fluoride Treatments are Administered

Our dentist can determine how often you should receive fluoride treatments during your initial evaluation. Treatments may be recommended every three, six, or 12 months, depending on the individual patient’s needs. Fluoride can be applied as a gel, foam, or varnish that is brushed onto the teeth. Our qualified staff will recommend the best choice for you.
