Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is the most effective agent available to help prevent tooth decay.  It is a mineral that is naturally present in varying amounts in almost all foods and water supplies.  The benefits of fluoride have been well known for over 50 years and are supported by many health and professional organizations.

Our hygienists will place a fluoride varnish on all of your teeth. This is the  most effective treatment.

Directions For Care After Treatment:  This treatment safely delivers
fluoride and a protective coating to your tooth surfaces. To obtain the maximum benefit,  we ask that you follow these recommendations after you leave our office:
• Do not brush or floss for at least 4 - 6 hours.
• If possible, wait until tomorrow morning to resume normal oral hygiene.
• Eat a soft food diet during the treatment period.
• Avoid hot drinks and products containing alcohol (i.e.: beverages, oral
rinses, etc.) during the treatment period.
You will be able to feel the varnish on your teeth. At the completion of the treatment period, you may brush and floss to remove any remaining varnish.
