To prevent cavities from taking control of your teeth, you should maintain good oral hygiene by regularly brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist. At Snödental, we also offer professional fluoride treatments so that your teeth can continue to be as healthy as possible.
We recommend coming in regularly to apply a topical fluoride, which will help protect your teeth from decay. It’s very convenient as you can receive your fluoride treatment when you visit us for a routine cleaning.
You may assume that you could just use an over-the-counter rinse at home. While this is a great proactive choice against tooth decay, the treatment we use is much stronger as it is a higher concentration solution. After you receive your fluoride treatment, we recommend not eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes so it can be fully absorbed
It’s highly recommended that you receive a fluoride treatment on a regular basis. It’s always best if you can help prevent problems from occurring in the first place so that you don’t have to eventually go through restoration treatments. Maintaining a healthy smile now means less stress and pain later.
Getting a professional fluoride treatment is one more thing you can do to keep your teeth at their best. Here are some benefits:
Strengthens your tooth enamel
Helps prevent cavities
Helps stop decay from penetrating teeth
Slows cavity growth
When you come in for our professional fluoride treatment, we’ll use a gel, foam, or varnish. The treatment will only last for a few minutes and will be applied by a brush or tray held against your teeth.
Getting regular fluoride treatment is an important step in maintaining your oral health. If you’re interested in getting a fluoride treatment and teeth cleaning, give us a call to book an appointment.
