What is Fluoride?

Commonly a part of most preventive dental care programs, fluoride is an organic mineral found in some foods and liquids. However, it can also be applied topically onto the teeth to produce several dental benefits. Fluoride helps to protect against enamel erosion by making the teeth more resilient to bacteria. This mineral can also strengthen the tooth’s structure to help reverse the beginning stages of decay. Many communities that add fluoride to their water supplies generally report fewer instances of cavities among their citizens. These advantages have been recognized by the American Dental Association and other notable organizations. At Kissable Dental, we proudly perform routine fluoride treatments for adults and children of all age groups. To learn more about how fluoride can enhance your family’s oral health, schedule an appointment at our Dallas, TX office.

What to Expect with Fluoride Treatments

Kissable Dental offers a variety of fluoride types and flavors to ensure that these treatments are tolerable for all patients. Fluoride treatments are typically performed every six months immediately following a professional cleaning and dental exam. As soon as you choose your fluoride flavor, a member of our team will prepare the application, either a liquid, gel, foam, or varnish. The treatment will remain on the teeth for under five minutes, depending on the solution type, to allow the minerals enough time to penetrate your enamel. To attain optimal benefits from your fluoride treatment, you may need to wait at least 30 minutes before snacking or drinking beverages.
