Flouride Treatment

Dental Fluoride Treatments at Linglestown Family Dental, Harrisburg, PA

Fluoride treatment is a preventive dental procedure that involves the application of fluoride to the teeth to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay.  Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps make the teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.

During a fluoride treatment, a concentrated fluoride gel, foam, or varnish is applied to the teeth using a brush, tray, or swab.  The fluoride is left on the teeth for a short period to allow for absorption into the enamel.  It helps to remineralize weakened areas and create a protective layer on the teeth, making them more resistant to acid erosion and cavity formation.

Fluoride treatment is beneficial for individuals of all ages, especially children and those at higher risk of tooth decay.  It is commonly performed during routine dental check-ups or as part of a comprehensive preventive dental care plan.

Regular fluoride treatments, combined with proper oral hygiene practices and a fluoride-rich diet, can significantly reduce the risk of tooth decay and promote long-term oral health.  Dentists may also recommend the use of fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinses at home to supplement the benefits of professional fluoride treatments.

Call Linglestown Family Dental to schedule your fluoride treatment.  We’ll help you determine the appropriate frequency and type of fluoride treatment based on individual oral health needs.
