Fluoride treatments are the most beneficial part of any dental preventive program. The use of twice a year, professional application of topical fluoride is an effective way of reducing the incidence of dental caries (cavities).
Fluoride is of benefit in many different ways including the re-mineralization of tooth enamel, and in altering bacterial metabolism in order to help prevent dental caries.
No more yucky, sour, medicine-like flavors that you as parents remember from your childhood! Fluoride in the dentist's office now can be applied as a tasty gel, light and flavorful foam, or painted on as a durable varnish (especially helpful for very young children).
