Fluoride applications are a powerful line of defense against tooth decay for both adults and children. Sai Dental Care promotes preventive measures to keep your mouth as healthy and cavity-free as possible. These include regular cleanings, periodic X-rays and great brushing and flossing habits. We also recommend fluoride applications that can create a barrier of defense in cavity-prone teeth. We specialize in fluoride applications such as varnish and foam fluoride for our patients both young and adult.
What types of fluoride treatments are there?
- Varnish Fluoride - Varnish fluoride is a white or tooth-colored resin that is “painted” over the teeth to create a semi-permanent barrier against plaque buildup that can lead to cavities. Patients typically experience a “waxy” feeling on the surface of their teeth that is only temporary.
- Foam Fluoride Applications - This highly effective fluoride treatment is easy and fast to apply, making it ideal for our youngest dental patients. The foam applications can be completed in as little as 60 seconds. The stable, airy foam spreads easily, delivers excellent coverage and reduces the risk of gagging and ingestion for small children.
Here at Sai Dental Care, we want you to achieve the very best oral health. That’s why strongly recommend that our patients schedule regular dental examinations and cleanings to keep their teeth healthy. To add another layer of protection, we’ll explore the use of fluoride applications to prevent cavities in those who are vulnerable. Contact us to schedule your routine checkup today, and while you’re here be sure to ask us if fluoride is right for you and the young ones in your family.
