Here at Park Dental, we are dedicated to the prevention of tooth decay.
We believe that fluoride works well to strengthen children’s teeth. It also has been shown to help prevent decay in people of all ages.
For this reason, the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Medical Association believe that topical fluoride is necessary for good oral health.
Because of this, you may be wondering if you need fluoride treatments. Many times, water is enhanced with fluoride usually in 1 ppm (1 part per million) If your water is not treated, you may need fluoride treatments.
Fluoride treatments can be completed at your routine dental appointment. They are painless and quick, taking only a few minutes. Typically after a cleaning our dental professional will apply a varnish on your teeth. Treatment works best if it is done one to four times a year. If you have any questions about fluoride and your dental health, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (614) 254-5116.
