Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is a simple yet effective preventive measure that helps strengthen teeth and protect against tooth decay. At Table Mountain Dental, Dr. Craig Cardon is committed to promoting optimal oral health for patients through this treatment.

Understanding Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps prevent cavities by making teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. Fluoride treatment involves applying a concentrated fluoride solution to the teeth, either in the form of a gel, foam or varnish. Some key aspects of fluoride treatment include:

  • Strengthening Tooth Enamel: Fluoride helps remineralize weakened enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay.
  • Preventing Cavities: Fluoride inhibits the growth of cavity-causing bacteria and promotes the repair of early-stage tooth decay.
  • Safe and Painless: Fluoride treatment is a quick and painless procedure that can be performed during a routine dental visit.

Benefits of Fluoride Treatment
Choosing fluoride treatment offers several important benefits:

  • Reduced Risk of Cavities: Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, reducing the risk of cavities and tooth decay.
  • Improved Oral Health: Regular fluoride treatment helps maintain optimal oral health and prevents dental issues.
  • Suitable for All Ages: Fluoride treatment is safe for patients of all ages, from children to adults.
  • Cost-Effective: Fluoride treatment is a cost-effective preventive measure that can save you money on dental treatments in the long run.

The Treatment Process

  • Application: The fluoride solution is applied to the teeth using a brush, tray or swab.
  • Absorption: The teeth absorb the fluoride, strengthening the enamel and providing protection against decay.
  • Post-Treatment Care: Patients are advised to avoid eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes after fluoride treatment to allow for optimal absorption.
