What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in most foods and water. It’s essential for oral health treatments, as it can build strong teeth and prevent cavities. Fluoride is also known to speed up remineralization and disrupt acid production in permanent teeth.

What to Expect During a Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatments at the dentist’s office are quite straightforward. They’re available in the form of a highly concentrated rinse, foam, gel, or varnish – much more than what’s in your toothpaste, food, or water. We can apply the fluoride with a swab, brush, mouthwash, or tray. It takes a few minutes to apply and needs about 30 minutes to fully absorb. Until then, you should avoid eating or drinking during that time.
