Do you ever wonder what a fluoride treatment is when your dentist, Dr. Christine Lee, recommends it? If so, our dental team is more than happy to tell you! That way you aren’t surprised when we provide the treatment.

A fluoride treatment is quick and simple. It involves using foam, gel, or varnish for a few minutes at our office. The treatment will be applied to the teeth. At this time, you will need to wait for the fluoride to dive deep into the teeth. This won’t take long. Then, the fluoride will be rinsed from your mouth. Typically, the treatment will be flavored to make it more enjoyable. No matter the treatment, it’s important to avoid drinking and eating for 30 minutes to allow the fluoride to strengthen the enamel.

This treatment can nourish the enamel and give it the ability to fight dental issues, especially tooth decay and enamel erosion. It will harden the enamel and help it keep the smile strong and healthy. This is why it’s important to expose your teeth to fluoride on a regular basis. You can do so by receiving a professional fluoride treatment at our office, brushing with fluoride toothpaste, and drinking fluoridated water.
