Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that aids in the reconstruction of tooth enamel and the reversal of early signs of tooth decay. Fluoride enters the body through two routes: systemically and topically. Fluoridated water and dietary fluoride supplements are both consumed as systemic fluorides. Topical fluoride is given directly to the teeth through toothpaste, mouth rinses, and dentist-office treatments. At Bell Dental Care, we want you to have all of the information you need to make the best decisions for your and your family's dental health.

What Is Fluoride Treatment?

During a fluoride treatment, our dental care practitioner applies a concentrated amount of fluoride to specific teeth as a gel, foam, varnish, or solution. It's similar to fluoride in toothpaste, except it has significantly higher fluoride levels and provides faster effects.

It is a fairly simple method for lowering the risk of cavities and improving the condition of the teeth. Fluoride treatments are also painless unless you already have tooth decay or cavities. However, this is something our dentist will check for ahead of time and warn you about to prepare you.

How Professional Fluoride Treatments Are Worth the Cost?

Whatever you pay for a topical fluoride treatment, it is well worth it. It is far less expensive than the cost of fixing dental decay that it can prevent. Professional fluoride treatment is a preventive therapy that helps your body fight cavities naturally. By preventing tooth decay, you can save money on dental treatment.

Benefits of Fluoride Treatments

  • It strengthens the enamel of developing teeth, making them more resistant to decay over time.
  • It improves the absorption of minerals such as calcium and phosphate, which repair deteriorated enamel and prevent further deterioration.
  • It is affordable and has the potential to postpone the need for more costly dental work.
  • It can aid in the prevention of gum disease and tooth loss.
  • These therapies can also aid in the preservation of an infant's teeth.

Does Professional Fluoride Treatments Hurt?

A professional fluoride treatment may be the simplest treatment you will ever receive in a dentist's office. A tiny brush is used to apply a fluoride varnish to the teeth. Fluoride is sometimes applied to the teeth using a tray loaded with fluoride gel or foam. There is nothing intrusive and no pain.
