Fluoride Treatment

Family Dentist in Hampton Cove

At Dental Associates of Hampton Cove, we offer fluoride treatment to prevent tooth decay for our patients. According to the ADA, fluoride intake is often recommended for infants and children between the ages of 6 months and 16 years. During this time, primary and permanent teeth are developing.

Fluoride is applied to the teeth in a varnish form using a brush. Fluoride helps by making the tooth more resistant to the build-up of decay causing plaque and sugars. It can also speed re-mineralization as well as disrupt acid erosion in teeth.

In addition to receiving fluoride treatment at our dental office, it can be applied to the teeth through fluoridated toothpastes and mouth rinses. Mouth rinses containing fluoride in lower strengths are available over-the-counter. However, stronger mouth rinses can be prescribed as needed. Dr. Lorrie Green will advise you about your child’s fluoride needs.

We strive to provide you with the highest quality care, including the use of fluoride. For more information or to request an appointment, contact Dental Associates of Hampton Cove.
