Fluoride Treatment

The daily grind of chewing, sipping on acidic drinks, and indulging in sweet treats slowly erodes tooth enamel, leaving your smile vulnerable. At Franklin Family Dental, we can help strengthen your teeth and shield them from decay with our fluoride treatments.

What is a Fluoride Treatment?

A fluoride treatment is a dental procedure designed to fortify tooth enamel, prevent cavities, and reduce sensitivity.

During the treatment, our friendly dental professional applies a concentrated fluoride solution to your teeth. She uses various forms, such as gels, foams, varnishes, or rinses, depending on your needs. Fluoride treatments only take a few minutes, which makes them a hassle-free addition to your dental visit.

Why Are Fluoride Treatments Necessary?

Fluoride fortifies the protective outer layer of your teeth, making them more resilient against acid attacks from plaque and bacteria. By reducing the risk of cavities, fluoride treatments also save you from the pain and expense of dental procedures down the road.

Finally, fluoride can provide relief from discomfort triggered by hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks because it strengthens enamel and shields the underlying dentin.

Who Can Benefit from Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride treatments are beneficial for everyone, but they are especially helpful in children, as their teeth are still developing. Moreover, if you have a history of cavities, weak enamel, or other dental issues, fluoride treatments can help prevent further damage.

How Often Should I Get Fluoride Treatments?

We usually recommend fluoride treatments every three, six, or twelve months depending on your medical history. Remember, fluoride treatments should complement your regular oral hygiene practices, not replace them.

Do Fluoride Treatments Hurt?

Not at all! Fluoride treatments are painless and well-tolerated. You might experience a temporary unusual taste or texture in your mouth, but it doesn’t hurt and fades quickly. Unlike some dental procedures, there are also no needles or drills involved, so you can rest easy.
