What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a mineral. You might have seen toothpaste with fluoride or water with added fluoride. This mineral is in your bones and teeth. It also occurs in water, plants, and other places naturally.
Fluoride strengthens the enamel on the teeth. The enamel is the outside of the tooth, and it works to protect the teeth. When the enamel is strong, the teeth are protected, and cavities can be prevented.
Why Should You Get Fluoride Treatment?
Fluoride treatments offer many benefits. Fluoride is a great way to keep your teeth strong and healthy.
Fluoride strengthens weak enamel and helps to keep important minerals in the teeth. This can slow tooth decay and minimize oral bacteria.
Who Should Get Fluoride Treatments?
Dentists recommend that people of all ages get fluoride treatments. Fluoride is recommended in small doses for children under 3. You should talk to our dentists about young children and fluoride.
You might need fluoride treatments every 6 or 12 months. You can have fluoride treatments more often if needed. Our dentists in Chaska & Excelsior, MN sometimes recommend at-home fluoride treatments too.
Fluoride Treatment Process
Fluoride treatments are quick and easy. There is no pain, and they take a few minutes.
Our professionals will apply a concentrated fluoride solution to your teeth. The solution may be a foam, rinse, or gel.
After the fluoride treatment is done, you will need to avoid eating and drinking for 30 minutes to 1 hour. If you eat too soon after a fluoride treatment, the solution won’t have time to soak into your teeth.
