At Roseville Topsmiles, our goal is to keep your mouth healthy and prevent any problems before they occur whenever possible. The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs reports that professionally applied fluoride treatments can effectively reduce cavities in children as well as adults.That’s why we often recommend fluoride applications to our patients as a preventive measure against plaque buildup that leads to cavities. During your routine visit to our office, we may recommend that you receive a fluoride application to guard against cavities. Fluoride is easy to apply, non-invasive and in most cases covered by insurance. We offer three types of fluoride applications including:
- Varnish Fluoride Applications - Fluoride varnish is extremely effective in the prevention of dental issues such as the cavities and hypersensitivity of the tooth surface. This safe and easy-to-apply solution can be professionally applied during your routine check-up at Roseville Topsmiles.
- Gel Fluoride Applications - The caring team at Roseville Topsmiles offers gel fluoride application to protect your teeth, The gel placed in a disposable tray and kept in the mouth for a short period of time creating a protective barrier for the teeth.
- Foam Fluoride Applications - In addition to the varnish which is brushed on the teeth or the gel fluoride option, there is also a foam fluoride application that can be used at Roseville Topsmile’s dental offices. Our dentists will work closely with you to determine which option will work best for your smile.
Fluoride is a proven solution that helps slow the progress of tooth decay by increasing the rate of enamel mineralization and decreasing demineralization. Acids that come from the foods we eat can accelerate this effect. Topical fluoride applications are an excellent barrier that can delay the progress of decay.
At Roseville Topsmiles, we often recommend a fluoride application twice a year for children until the age of eighteen. For adults, this treatment is used when needed and based upon general oral health conditions.
