At Prime Time Dentistry, we prioritize your oral health by offering professional fluoride treatments to prevent tooth decay. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends fluoride particularly for infants and children between the ages of 6 months and 16 years, as this crucial period encompasses the development of primary and permanent teeth.
During a fluoride treatment, a varnish form of fluoride is carefully applied to the teeth using a brush. This treatment strengthens the tooth enamel, making it more resistant to the harmful effects of plaque buildup and sugars that contribute to decay. Furthermore, fluoride aids in the re-mineralization process and helps protect teeth against acid erosion.
While fluoride treatment is administered at our dental office, it can also be supplemented through the use of fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinses. Over-the-counter mouth rinses with lower concentrations of fluoride are readily available, while stronger formulations can be prescribed if necessary. Dr. Abdul Khan will provide personalized guidance on your specific fluoride needs.
At Prime Time Dentistry, we are committed to delivering exceptional care and prioritize the use of fluoride to promote optimal oral health.
