Cavities can be a significant problem for children, teenagers, and adults but many dentists today offer various treatments to prevent the onset of tooth decay for good. Fluoride treatment can prevent tooth decay and even reverse its damage in its earliest stages and is considered an excellent preventative treatment for children with sensitive teeth.
Dental Care 4 U offers professional fluoride treatments for children and adults at higher risk for cavities. Our fluoride treatments are performed during their six-month cleaning appointments, and under the care of Dr. Raj Khurana, we can work to protect your family’s dental health by caring for them for life.
How Fluoride Is Protection From Tooth Decay at Dental Care 4 U
For families needing better ways to prevent cavities, our team at Dental Care 4 U can provide fluoride treatments as a complimentary part of your children’s dental care. Our dentists will recommend fluoride treatments for children and adults at high risk of tooth decay, as fluoride is an essential component of good oral health. Its benefits include:
- Bonds with Enamel: Fluoride’s superpower comes from its ability to strengthen the enamel by bonding with the enamel molecules, adding a shiny, hard outer layer to the enamel.
- Protective Surface: Fluoride provides a protective layer for the dentin and pulp beneath the tooth and therefore prevents the onset of bacteria and decay.
- Remineralizes Small Cavities: Most of all, fluoride remineralizes areas of small cavities before they have a chance to cause problems in the future.
Fluoride is a reliable, tooth-friendly mineral that’s been shown to prevent tooth decay and even reverse its effects. Because of these effects, fluoride is added to community water, toothpaste, and some mouthwashes and is recommended by our dentists for a healthy smile.
Fluoride Treatments Provided at Dental Care 4 U
When visiting Dr. Raj Khurana, we can provide effective, safe-to-use fluoride treatments in as little as an hour. During your appointment, Dr. Khurana will apply the varnish to your or your child’s teeth using a gel, foam, or rinse. Once the fluoride has been activated, it leaves behind a shiny surface that protects your teeth from decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss.
At Dental Care 4 U, we work to foster positive experiences at our dental office through regular visits and treatment options to prevent tooth decay and keep your smile healthy. Fluoride treatments represent just one facet of our overall goal – to provide excellent, bread-and-butter dentistry to families everywhere in Holland, IL.
