Fluoride is a mineral that your teeth need to be strong enough to fight off bacteria, decay, and infection. In order to keep your teeth strong and functional, Dr. Robert A. McCulla is happy to provide a fluoride treatment in Turlock, California, that will do the job.
During your dental exam and cleaning, your dentist and hygienist will provide a flavored fluoride treatment that will be in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish. The fluoride will be placed in your mouth and you will wait for a few minutes while the minerals soak into your teeth. As time passes and we remove the fluoride, we will rinse your mouth out with water and send you on your way.
However, the fluoride treatment you receive at Turlock Dental Care every six months will not be enough to keep the health of your teeth in tip-top shape. In addition, we also recommend using a fluoride treatment or mouth wash at home. This can include the use of fluoride toothpaste, fluoride tablets, fluoride gels, or fluoride mouth rinse.
If you would like more information on how much fluoride you need and which products to use, please feel free to call our office and set up an appointment with your dentist.
