Fluoride Treatment

Dr. Jorge Reyes and Dr. Catalina Madrigal provide fluoride treatment to help you avoid cavities. This simple preventive treatment is a great way to maintain a healthier mouth and smile.

What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral, and can be found in many foods as well as many water supplies. You will receive a certain amount of fluoride from your diet and from brushing your teeth with a fluoridated toothpaste, but our dentists may also recommend a professional fluoride treatment to help strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities.

Professional fluoride treatments can be applied in just a few minutes during your regular cleanings and exams. Fluoride is available as a gel, varnish or foam, and is a quick and comfortable way to boost your oral health and keep your smile healthy. Our dentists will check your fluoride levels during your dental checkups to determine if a fluoride treatment is right for you.

How Fluoride Treatment Benefits Your Smile

As you eat and drink through the day, the sugars, acids and bacteria in your mouth attack and demineralize your tooth enamel. Fluoride works to remineralize this enamel, strengthening your teeth and helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Fluoride also plays a role in strengthening children’s teeth as they develop to make sure that they are strong and healthy.
