Fluoride Treatment

Adding a topical fluoride treatment to your dental cleaning can provide many benefits.  Our method at Commerce Drive Dental of the professional in-office fluoride is varnish.  This type of fluoride adheres to the teeth immediately and stays in contact for several hours, making it more effective. Fluoride varnish is an inexpensive product that is effective in preventing cavities on primary and permanent teeth.
 
Fluoride enters the teeth and hardens them.  This helps to stop new cavities from forming on the crown and exposed root surfaces by almost 70%.  Varnish also re-strengthens teeth that have beginning cavities, helping to prevent the need to have the beginning cavities filled.  Fluoride varnish is also proven to help reduce tooth sensitivity.
 
Varnish is safe for patients of all ages and application frequency can be discussed at your next visit. The application process is easy and only takes a couple of minutes.  Because a small amount is used, almost no fluoride is swallowed.  Once the varnish is applied we will give you brief instructions and you will be on your way.
