At Ivory Dental in West Lethbridge, we may recommend a fluoride treatment to help protect your teeth.
Acid from plaque and bacteria in the mouth can cause tooth decay.
Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent cavities and can help repair teeth in the very early microscopic stages of tooth decay.
A fluoride treatment is applied directly to the tooth surface after the teeth have been professionally cleaned.
These treatments take just a few minutes and are available in the form of a rinse, foam or varnish.
Regular fluoride treatments are recommended for adults and children. Below are some factors that may increase the risk of developing cavities, and reasons why a fluoride treatment may be recommended for you:
NOTE: If you are at high risk of developing cavities, we may also recommend over the counter products such as fluoride gels, mouth rinses or antibacterial mouth rinses.
