Our Dentists Can Help Strengthen Your Child's Teeth
Fluoride treatment in Gainesville, FL, is an effective preventive option to strengthen your child's teeth and prevent cavities. Fluoride is a mineral that can help prevent cavities by repairing damaged tooth enamel when the damage is still in its early stages. The benefits of fluoride have been known for decades, which is why we typically brush our teeth with fluoride-based toothpaste.
How Fluoride Treatment Works
When tooth decay is still in the microscopic stages, fluoride can help reverse the damage by strengthening tooth enamel and replenishing lost phosphate and calcium. Restoring these minerals makes teeth more resistant to future decay.
Our fluoride treatments applied in our dental office are a good option for those with a higher risk for tooth decay or erosion. Your child may benefit from fluoride treatments if they have:
- Weak enamel
- Chronic dry mouth
- Poor oral health
- Existing crowns
The fluoride paste we use is a much higher concentration than what you will find in your toothpaste or mouth rinse, and our professional supervision ensures that this higher level of fluoride won’t cause any undue side effects.
Let Us Protect Your Child's Dental Health
In-office fluoride treatments at our dental office can also help protect the health and integrity of your child's teeth. If your child is at a higher risk of cavities due to genetics or any other reason, ask our dental team whether fluoride treatment would be a good option for their smile.
