Fluoride Treatment Greater Orlando Dentists

Enhance the strength and resilience of tooth enamel with fluoride treatment from our Greater Orlando, FL, dentists. Great for all members of the family, this painless procedure helps to prevent tooth decay and makes smiles more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria and plaque thanks to a topical fluoride solution applied to teeth.

Applying topical fluoride to teeth works to remineralize and strengthen enamel while also preventing tooth decay.

Here’s what you can expect from the application of fluoride.

What Exactly Is Fluoride & Is It Safe?

Fluoride is a mineral found in your bones and teeth. It can also naturally be found in water, soil, plants, rocks, and air. As far as dentistry is concerned, fluoride is used to help improve the health of teeth and keep cavities away. In fact, fluoride can reduce cavity development by approximately 25%.

Treatment using fluoride is also perfectly safe. This is why it’s been integrated into toothpastes, mouth rinses, and even public drinking water over the years. Our dentists and team members also tailor every fluoride treatment to the patient so for instance, a child would not receive the same amount as an adult.

Prime Candidates for Fluoride Treatment

The great thing about fluoride is that it can serve a wide range of people. Children and teenagers between 6 months and 16 years old, in particular, are often considered first for fluoride treatments as their developing teeth can benefit significantly from the strengthening effects.

We may also recommend fluoride application for those who:

  • May be at a higher risk of developing cavities or experiencing enamel demineralization
  • Are prone to dry mouth conditions
  • Do not otherwise have access to fluoridated water
  • Exhibit signs of enamel erosion
  • Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, i.e., braces
