Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and water. The bacteria inside of plaque produces acids that can demineralize the tooth. We apply fluoride varnish to teeth to help prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to the acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It remineralizes the tooth.


Reasons for fluoride varnish

  • too much decay
  • root sensitivity
  • dry mouth
  • a lot of dental work
