Fluoride Applications

At Amador Dentistry, we firmly believe in the power of preventive care to help our patients and their families maintain optimal oral health. The very first step in a preventive oral care program is to avoid cavities, which are the major cause of tooth loss and dental health deterioration. That is why we offer topical fluoride application treatments to protect our patients’ teeth.

When oral bacteria break down sugars in the food you eat, they produce an acid in the mouth, leading to the buildup of a sticky film called “plaque” around the gums and teeth. Without a proper oral care regimen including brushing, flossing and regular professional dental cleanings, this buildup can harden into tartar, causing cavities and decay.

In addition to proper oral hygiene, one way to strengthen the enamel of the teeth against acid attack, and prevent dental caries is a mineral called fluoride. Fluoride not only aids prevention of cavities but can also effectively repair tooth decay in its early, microscopic stages.

Fluoride can be obtained topically or systemically. Systemic fluorides are ingested by consuming fluoridated water, dietary supplements, etc. Topical fluoride application involves applying fluoride in gel or varnish form directly to the teeth, or the use of fluoridated mouth rinses and toothpastes.

Topical fluoride treatments done at a dental office involve a much stronger and effective concentration of fluoride. A typical fluoride treatment is a quick, painless, one-visit procedure which begins by cleaning the teeth to remove plaque and food particles. Then, a professional strength fluoride gel or varnish is painted on to the surface of the teeth. After the application, you are advised not to eat, drink or rinse your mouth for about half an hour, so that the fluoride can be absorbed effectively.

Take the first step towards protecting your dental health against cavities and tooth decay. Schedule a fluoride application treatment at Amador Dentistry now. Call us at (954) 941-4410 to schedule your appointment.
