Empower Your Child's Smile with Expert Dental Fluoride Treatments

Using Fluoride to Protect your Teeth

You brush your teeth twice a day, floss regularly, and visit the dentist every six months, but did you know that fluoride — a mineral that helps prevent cavities and tooth decay — also helps keep your teeth healthy and strong?


Dental fluoride treatments are effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay by increasing your tooth enamel’s natural resistance to decay.

Fluoride comes in two varieties, topical and systemic

We will talk about different fluoride treatment options and explain which one is better for your child. A fluoride treatment in our office takes a few minutes.


After the treatment, the patient may be asked not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride. Depending on your child’s oral health or the doctor’s recommendation, a fluoride treatment may be applied every three, six, or 12 months.


Dr. Leila may also prescribe an at-home fluoride product such as mouthwash or gels.
