Preserve A Healthy Smile With Fluoride Treatments
Maintaining optimal oral health is crucial for a vibrant smile. Among the various preventive measures available at Woodland Lakes Dental in Orlando and Alafaya, fluoride treatments are a highly effective method to strengthen teeth and protect against decay.
What are fluoride treatments?
Fluoride treatments involve the application of a concentrated fluoride solution to the teeth. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps to strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque and bacteria. It can also reverse the early stages of tooth decay by remineralizing weakened areas. Fluoride treatments are quick, painless, and often performed during routine dental visits.
How is fluoride applied?
Our dentist will typically apply a fluoride gel, foam, or varnish to the teeth using a brush, swab, or tray. The application takes only a few minutes and allows the fluoride to penetrate the enamel, replenishing essential minerals. Depending on the specific treatment, the dentist may advise against eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes afterward to ensure maximum absorption.
What are the benefits of fluoride treatment?
Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, reducing the risk of cavities and dental decay. It can reverse early signs of decay, preventing the need for more invasive treatments. Regular fluoride applications can help maintain a healthy smile, especially for individuals prone to dental issues, such as children, older adults, and those with weakened enamel.
Who should get fluoride treatments?
Fluoride treatments are beneficial for individuals of all ages. Children, particularly, can benefit significantly from fluoride treatments as their developing teeth are more susceptible to decay. Additionally, these treatments can dramatically help individuals with a history of cavities, gum disease, or dry mouth.
