Fluoride Treatment

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 applied with a swab or brush to the teeth.


Too little or too much fluoride can be detrimental to one's teeth. We will work with you to make the best decisions in regards to the preventive measures we take.
