    Fluoride Treatments

    Why is Fluoride Treatment Important?

    We often come across advertisements for fluoride-containing toothpaste or mouthwashes, but how exactly does fluoride work? Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that fuses with the tooth enamel to enhance its strength and resistance against dental cavities. The American Dental Association (ADA) has highlighted its significance for oral health.

    Children are more prone to develop cavities or tooth decay due to multiple factors. When they eat candies or sweets, the oral bacteria convert these sugars into acidic substances that can demineralize the tooth enamel. By receiving early fluoride treatments in Houston, TX, your kids and teens can maintain a beautiful, vibrant smile. We also recommend this treatment for adults who are at high risk of dental cavities.

    Benefits of Fluoride Treatment

    If you want to prevent cavities and maintain a healthy smile, we recommend getting fluoride treatment at our Houston, TX, practice. It provides many benefits, including:

    • It reinforces the tooth enamel and adds to its structural strength.
    • It forms a protective barrier against harmful oral bacteria that can cause cavities. 
    • Fluoride remineralizes the enamel, reducing the damage caused by cavities.
    • It seals the exposed tooth regions and prevents tooth sensitivity. 
    • It is an effective way to avoid cavities among children and adults.
    • This treatment is much more cost-effective in the long run.

    Process of Fluoride Treatments in Houston, TX

    Upon your visit, our dentists will first carry out a brief exam to assess the health of your child’s teeth and gums. We may recommend dental cleaning before the treatment to get rid of plaque and tartar deposits. 

    Our practice offers fluoride treatment in various solutions and flavors to make it a joyful experience. The procedure is completely non-invasive and painless, so it does not require anesthesia. We will begin by applying a coat of the prepared solution to your child’s teeth. Within a few minutes, the fluoride ions from the solution will incorporate with the tooth enamel. 

    After the recommended period, we will rinse the fluoride solution. Our team may recommend a fluoride-containing toothpaste or mouthwash for added protection.
