Fluoride is a chemical compound that is proven to be beneficial to teeth. It strengthens enamel and prevents decay. As a result, there are many over-the-counter toothpastes and mouthwashes containing fluoride; however, those who are at an extra high risk for cavities may benefit from professional fluoride treatments in addition to daily doses. This is generally delivered in the form of a varnish or solution that is highly-concentrated with fluoride. It’s typically applied with a swab or brush or even placed in a tray that is held in the mouth for several minutes.
Too little or too much fluoride can be detrimental to your teeth. We will work with you to make the best decisions in regards to your preventive care.
