Fluoride is a chemical compound that strengthens enamel and prevents decay.
As a result, there are many over-the-counter toothpastes and mouthwashes containing fluoride. However, we also offer professional fluoride treatments in our office. This is generally delivered in the form of a gel, foam or solution that is highly concentrated with fluoride and is typically applied with a swab, brush or tray that is held in the mouth for several minutes.
Fluoride treatment is recommend for both children and adults, and is typically covered for children under most dental insurances.
