The enamel of your teeth and your children’s teeth needs fluoride to remain strong and healthy. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that’s found in water and some foods. Unfortunately, your daily intake of fluoride may not meet your body’s requirements. Likewise, your children may not be brushing and rinsing with the fluoride products that you’ve provided with the diligence that you envisioned. That’s why a periodic fluoride treatment near you from Station Dental is a great step in preventive dental care.
Being proactive about your dental health and the dental health of your family, instead of waiting until an event such as tooth decay sends you to the dentist’s office, is beneficial in several ways:
Fluoride treatments are most often associated with added protection in children’s dentistry, but the treatment in adults provides them with peace of mind that they are as proactive as possible in their total healthcare.
Even though fluoride products are available for purchase over the counter (OTC) or online, there is never a substitute for the quality and concentration level of the ingredients used by our dentists near you for treatment. Plus, because the procedure is non-invasive and pain-free, it’s a great way for parents to help instill confidence in their children that going to the dentist can be fun.
But don’t just take our word for it. The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients of all ages receive a professional fluoride treatment from a dentist near them every 3 – 12 months (variations in timing will be based on each patient’s oral health at the time of their appointment).
To make scheduling easy for our patients, our dentists near you at Station Dental include fluoride treatment as a part of every professional cleaning.
