Fluoride Treatments: Not Just For Kids

fluoride treatment Yuma

You rarely hear the word “toothpaste” without it being preceded by “fluoride.” Fluoride is a vital mineral that helps your teeth stay strong. Found in some foods and water, it makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities. Teeth are stronger and more resistant to the dangerous acid formed by bacteria. At The Yuma Dentist, Dr. Franklin Hulme may recommend a fluoride treatment in addition to your dental cleaning.

The fluoride used in in-office treatments comes in either a gel or foam, and may be available in several flavors. We apply the fluoride directly to your teeth through the use of a plastic dental tray that fits over them.. The tray stays in your mouth for just a few minutes. Fluoride treatments are a quick and painless way to strengthen your teeth and maintain an attractive smile.

If you wonder if you or your child is getting enough fluoride, speak with us about fluoride supplements. We’ll let you know if they are necessary and determine the precise supplement dosage. Don’t give your child fluoride supplements without your dentist’s counsel. Too much fluoride can lead to fluorosis, which discolors teeth and makes them more susceptible to tooth decay.

The amount of fluoride your kids receive depends on where you live. They may not need fluoride supplements if they drink tap water from a fluoridated municipal water supply. If your family only drinks bottled water without fluoride, you may want to examine supplementation. Keep in mind that the FDA does not require bottled water companies to list the fluoride content on the bottle label and many brands do not contain fluoride.

If your child is getting adequate levels of fluoride but continues to get cavities, meet with us about beneficial dental sealants. Sealants effectively protect the rear molars from tooth decay.

We’re enthusiastic about preventative dentistry.  Make sure to schedule twice-yearly exams and dental cleanings with fluoride treatments. Call us at 928-783-0804 today!
