What are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride treatments are ideal for patients who want to protect their teeth and prevent future issues with tooth decay. If you don’t get enough fluoride through the water you’re drinking or the products you’re using, we might recommend that you have additional fluoride treatment applied to your teeth. Pediatric patients can especially benefit from having this treatment done, as it’s a way to prevent the onset of cavities.

Why would Fluoride Treatments be needed?

Fluoride treatment can be requested at any time during your visit with us. The procedure is quick, easy and takes just seconds to apply to your teeth. You may need these treatments if you’re looking for another way to keep your teeth healthy and strong. Patients who don’t brush well, eat a high sugar diet or who are vulnerable to developing cavities can benefit from this treatment.

Who is a good candidate for Fluoride Treatments?

The majority of our patients are good candidates for fluoride treatments done in our dental office in Downtown Chicago. Whether you’re an adult or have a child who could utilize these treatments, they are safely and quickly done in our office. During your exam, Dr. Barsa & Dr. Delafuente can recommend these treatments to you if they’re needed. Fluoride can then be applied at your subsequent bi-annual dental visits to keep your teeth healthy and strong.

What happens during the Fluoride Treatment procedure?

The procedure to apply fluoride is incredibly quick and simple. In fact, it can be done in conjunction with other procedures that you’re having done. We will first clean and dry the front teeth before applying liquid fluoride to the area. You’ll be given instruction on how long to avoid eating and drinking in order for the fluoride to work effectively. You can have this same treatment done at each of your dental checkup visits as a way to protect your teeth and prevent cavities in the future.
