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, our team is happy to provide a fluoride treatment in Turlock, California, that can help strengthen your smile.
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. After a certain amount of time has passed, we will remove the fluoride, 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 today at 209-667-7889 and set up an appointment with our dentists, Dr. Robert A. McCulla or Dr. Zachary McComb.
