Fluoride Treatments Can Help Protect & Strengthen Your Smile
A mineral found in many foods and water sources, fluoride helps protect teeth against decay by fortifying enamel and even reversing early signs of tooth decay! At My Cherry Creek Dentist in Denver, we’re proud to provide fluoride treatments as part of our commitment to helping patients maintain optimal oral health.
How is a fluoride treatment applied?
Using a highly concentrated form of fluoride, our dental professional will apply a varnish or solution to your teeth. It will be left to dry for several minutes before being rinsed off. Patients should avoid eating, drinking or rinsing for at least 30 minutes following the treatment.
How often should these treatments be performed?
At My Cherry Creek Dentist, we recommend that patients have their teeth treated with fluoride during their bi-annual checkup and cleaning appointments. However, depending on a patient’s risk for tooth decay, individual medical history, and other factors, that recommendation may change.
Who should consider fluoride treatments?
Fluoride treatments can be beneficial to anyone looking to maintain strong and healthy teeth. They are especially recommended for those with a history of tooth decay or those who may be at higher risk due to lifestyle habits. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children begin regular fluoride treatments as soon as their first teeth erupt.
