What is a fluoride treatment?
During a fluoride treatment, one of our highly skilled dentists will apply a concentrated fluoride solution to your teeth. After the treatment, we encourage you to not rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride. This preventive dental procedure is quick, painless, and can be done during a regular check-up or when recommended to encourage better oral health and reduce the risk of cavities.
Is fluoride safe?
Fluoride occurs naturally in many water sources, and when used in dental products like toothpaste and in professionally administered treatments, it is carefully monitored to be safe for oral health. When fluoride treatment is applied by a professional in sufficient doses, it can help teeth remain strong, healthy, and protected. However, excessive fluoride intake can lead to dental fluorosis. At Prairie Dental Group, we will monitor and discuss your fluoride intake to ensure your oral health remains in its best condition.
How often should I get fluoride treatment?
The frequency of fluoride treatment for kids and adults depends on individual oral health needs. Typically, children and adults at higher risk for cavities may benefit from treatments every 3-12 months. In other cases, dental fluoride treatment at least every six months is enough protection. However, at your routine exam and cleaning, our dental team will recommend an appropriate schedule to ensure fluoride treatment prevents cavities and is effective for your oral health.
