Fluoride Treatments For A Strong, Healthy Smile

Fluoride treatments are a great way to prevent and even reverse the early signs of dental decay. At Gifford Family Dentistry in Portland, we offer this service to help keep our patients’ smiles strong.

What is fluoride?

A naturally occurring mineral usually found in soil, water, and food, fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel by replenishing minerals that are lost or damaged by bacteria or acid erosion.

How are fluoride treatments performed?

Our team will use either a fluoride tray, gel, or paste and apply it directly to your teeth. The application process takes just minutes, and our experienced staff will ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the process.

Who can benefit from fluoride treatment and how often should it be performed?

Almost anyone can benefit from fluoride treatment, but it’s especially important for children and adults who are particularly susceptible to decay, as well as those with a history of cavities.

In terms of frequency, it’s recommended that most patients have professional fluoride treatments performed during their regular bi-annual checkup appointments. Of course, based on your unique oral health needs, our team will advise you on whether this frequency is right for you!

At Gifford Family Dentistry, we are committed to helping our patients achieve and maintain healthy and confident smiles. If you would like to learn more about fluoride treatments and how they can benefit you and your family, contact us today!
