If you’re searching for an effective way to prevent cavities and tooth decay, you may want to consider a fluoride treatment. Tooth decay occurs when plaque builds up and hardens on the tooth’s surface. Fluoride treatments take only a few minutes to complete in the dentist’s office. After receiving the treatment you may not be able to eat, drink, or even rinse your mouth for at least 30 minutes. This gives your teeth enough time to adequately absorb the fluoride. These treatments are suggested every three, six, or 12 months, depending on your oral health and your dentist’s recommendation.

Fluoride treatments aren’t just for children. Call Brandywine Dental Services Group today to learn more about how these treatments can improve your overall oral health.
