One of the best substances for strengthening teeth, fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be applied directly to teeth. Supplemental fluoride applications can be extremely helpful in preventing cavities and other forms of tooth decay. At Siesta Village Dentistry, we provide fluoride applications for patients of all ages, and we generally recommend them to anyone who is at a high risk for experiencing tooth decay.
Fluoride applications may be offered for patients who experience any of these conditions:
- Dry mouth
- Lack of saliva flow
- Frequent Cavities
- Exposed root surfaces
Fluoride applications may also be appropriate for patients who:
- Have dental crowns or bridges
- Use orthodontics, such as braces
- Have a high sugar intake
- Are not regularly exposed to fluoride
- Have a history of tooth decay
- Display poor oral hygiene practices
Siesta Village Dentistry offers fluoride treatments in the form of gel or varnish. Either of these treatments can be completed in a matter of minutes. After a patient has received fluoride treatment, they should avoid eating or drinking for at least one hour. This will allow their teeth to fully absorb all of the fluoride that has been applied and ensure that they get the maximum benefit from the treatment.
Siesta Village can provide fluoride applications to help protect your teeth from serious damage and decay. Please call us at (941) 240-1740 to schedule an appointment.
