Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay and cavities. It can be found in toothpaste, mouthwash, and other dental hygiene products.  

Fluoride helps to strengthen the teeth and prevent cavities. However, many people don’t get enough fluoride in their diet or from their daily oral hygiene routine. That’s why dentists recommend professional fluoride treatments for children and adults.  

At Bright Smiles 4 Kids of Bala, we offer fluoride treatments to help strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. A fluoride treatment at our dentist’s office involves applying a concentrated fluoride gel, foam, or varnish to your teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Jyoti, will carefully apply the fluoride product to the teeth for a few minutes and then rinse it off. This quick procedure can be done during your regular checkup and cleaning appointment.  

Professional fluoride treatments are safe and effective for people of all ages. Children and adults with an increased risk of tooth decay can benefit from regular fluoride treatments.

The Advantages of Fluoride Treatment

Strengthens Tooth Enamel

Fluoride treatment helps strengthen the tooth enamel, which is the protective outer layer of the teeth. It enhances the enamel's resistance to acid attacks from bacteria and acidic foods, reducing the risk of tooth decay and cavities.

Prevents Tooth Decay

One of the primary benefits of fluoride treatment is its ability to prevent tooth decay. By creating a protective shield over the teeth, fluoride inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and reduces the production of acid that causes cavities.

Suitable for All Ages

Fluoride treatment is safe and beneficial for people of all ages, from infants to older adults. For children, fluoride is especially crucial during the development of their permanent teeth, ensuring a solid foundation for healthy smiles.

Is Fluoride Safe?

The ADA recommends fluoride treatments for all patients, regardless of age or oral health status. However, it is essential for children whose teeth are still developing. Children who drink fluoridated water or take fluoride supplements are less likely to develop tooth decay than those who don’t.

Fluoride treatments, while involving the application of a highly concentrated fluoride gel to your teeth, are performed by a dentist who has undergone training and study. Your dentist will carefully apply just the right amount of gel using a brush or swab, then leave it on your teeth for several minutes. After the treatment, you can rinse your mouth with water.

Fluoride treatments are safe and painless. They take only a few minutes to complete and don’t require any recovery time. You can eat and drink normally after your appointment.

Fluoride treatment is a valuable and effective preventive measure that strengthens teeth, defends against tooth decay, and promotes optimal dental health.
