At Elegance Dental in Southington, CT, we believe taking preventive measures can help guarantee good long-term oral health. Our staff prides itself on offering our patients of all ages fluoride treatments that can help protect teeth from being damaged.
What does a Fluoride Treatment entail?
At Elegance Dental, we offer several options for fluoride treatments. The procedure is an in-office treatment that is performed after a regular dental cleaning exam. Usually, a fluoride gel is placed in a tray and inserted into the mouth for your teeth to “soak” in the solution for a few minutes. The fluoride will soak into the teeth where the minerals are needed. After the procedure, it is advisable to wait a few hours before you eat or drink. We highly recommend additional fluoride treatments as part of any preventive measure to maintain a healthy and strong smile. Fluoride treatments should be scheduled as recommended by the dentist.
What is the right fluoride treatment for home use?
Brushing twice a day, flossing between teeth and using any over-the-counter products can help prevent plaque from settling on your teeth. When choosing an at-home fluoride treatment such as toothpaste or mouthwash, always check the label for the American Dental Association’s (ADA) seal of approval. Products marked with the ADA seal are carefully examined by the ADA and approved based on their safety and effectiveness.
