Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride Treatments

For you to achieve and maintain optimal oral health, it requires that you take an active role. A healthy, beautiful smile does not simply happen – it is the choices you make that determine your entire health, including your oral health. Flossing and brushing are both essential elements of oral hygiene, as well as keeping dental visits twice a year. Yet, there is another element of protection that can keep your teeth healthy and strong between dental visits.

Fluoride treatments have been used by dentists for decades as a means to protect their patients’ teeth. Fluoride is a natural compound of the element fluoride, and it has long been known to prevent cavities by strengthening the tooth enamel and making it more resistant to the harmful effects of oral plaque. Plaque develops on the teeth as a sticky film throughout each day. Flossing is the most effective way to scrape plaque from the teeth, brushing helps to brush it away, and regular dental visits thoroughly remove plaque that has hardened into tartar. Most people are not avid flossers, and some people are simply more prone to developing cavities. Fluoride treatments are quickly and painless application procedures that help to keep cavities at bay.

If any of the following indicators apply to you or your child, fluoride treatments can provide great benefits to your oral health:

  • Main source of water is well water
  • Poor oral hygiene (including NOT flossing every day)
  • Irregular dental visits
  • Poor diet
  • Acid reflux
  • An eating disorder
  • Dry mouth
  • Gum recession
  • Active orthodontic treatment
  • The use of certain medications
  • Alcohol or drug use (including tobacco use)
  • Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
