    Why Fluoride Treatment Matters

    Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste and other over-the-counter products is a necessary part of maintaining your oral health. However, regular fluoride treatment at our office is an essential part of proper oral hygiene as well. Treatments help strengthen enamel on your teeth, and this will help prevent bacteria and tooth decay.

    We offer the best fluoride treatments in the industry

    Some of the products we are excited to offer our patients are Fluoridex toothpaste, MI paste and Varnish.

    • Fluoridex toothpaste provides four times more fluoride compared to over-the-counter dental products, therefore providing superior defense against cavities.
    • MI paste that is rich in two key minerals – calcium and phosphate. This paste is great for sensitive teeth and dry mouths.
    • Varnish is a resin-based fluoride that contains 5 percent sodium fluoride. It is brushed on your teeth to help protect your enamel.

    Additional Information About Varnish

    Varnish is fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration and contains a higher level of fluoride than over-the-counter oral products.  Following your fluoride treatment with Varnish, it’s important not to eat for 2 hours. Mouthwashes that contain fluoride should be avoided for the remainder of the day as well.
