Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride Treatment IN HIALEAH, FL

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been shown to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. At LA Family Dentistry, we offer fluoride treatment as part of our comprehensive range of preventive dental services.

Fluoride treatment involves the application of a fluoride gel or varnishes to the teeth. It is absorbed by the tooth enamel to help strengthen and protect against cavities. Fluoride treatment is a quick and painless process that can be completed in just one visit. Our dentist in Hialeah, FL, will clean and dry the teeth to be treated, and apply the fluoride gel or varnish using a brush or applicator.

Why get Fluoride Treatment?

Fluoride treatment is especially beneficial for children, whose developing teeth are particularly susceptible to cavities and decay. Fluoride can help strengthen and protect children’s teeth as they grow, helping to prevent the need for more invasive dental treatments in the future.

In addition to in-office fluoride treatment, our dental professionals may also recommend fluoride toothpaste or mouthwash for daily use at home. These products can help maintain the benefits of fluoride treatment and further protect against tooth decay.

While fluoride is safe and effective when used as directed, it is important to use fluoride products in moderation and under the guidance of a dental professional. Too much fluoride can cause a condition called fluorosis, which can cause white spots or discoloration on the teeth.
