Crooked teeth affect your appearance and oral health, but you may be hesitant to wear metal braces.

Fluoride protects teeth from erosion and, in turn, reduces the risk of cavities.

That sounds great! But how does it work?

How Fluoride

KEEPS TEETH STRONG

Prevents Decay

By making teeth more resistant to the acids found in plaque, fluoride can protect you from cavities and reverse early decay.

Provides More Concentrated Treatment

Though fluoride is often found in toothpastes and mouth rinses, it is delivered at a higher concentration in professional gels, solutions, and varnishes.

Protects Adults and Children Alike

While most often recommended for children, fluoride can benefit adults who are more vulnerable to cavities, including those with gum diseasedry mouth conditions, or restorations.

What can you expect during treatment?

If You or Your Child are Prone to Cavities,

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO FIGHT THEM

But is fluoride treatment the best option for me and my child?

Why Pay for Preventive Care

WHEN I CAN TREAT A CAVITY?

The cost of a typical fluoride application is about $30 to $35. In contrast, fillings generally cost about $90 to $250, and crowns about $500 to $2,500 per tooth.

While a crown can take up to two weeks to fabricate and place, varnish takes only a few minutes to apply.

Choose Your Method of Delivery

Fluoride treatment comes in many forms. If you would prefer to avoid trays and gel, your dentist can use varnish. This is gently painted on the front, back, and top of teeth and will harden in seconds. The entire procedure takes no more than two minutes. Simply leave the varnish on for six hours (you can return to normal activities immediately), and remove it with a toothbrush later in the day.

Fluoride treatment is a quick and easy way to protect the health and longevity of your or your child’s smile. At such a low cost, it is a no-brainer! Talk to your dentist today to learn more.
