At Waterford Dental Arts, we offer fluoride treatment to prevent tooth
decay for our patients. According to the ADA, fluoride intake is often
recommended for infants and children between the ages of 6 months and 16
years. During this time, primary and permanent teeth are developing.
Fluoride is applied to the teeth in a varnish form using a brush. Fluoride helps by
making the tooth more resistant to the build-up of decay causing plaque and
sugars. It can also speed re-mineralization as well as disrupt acid erosion in
In addition to receiving fluoride treatment at our dental office, it can be applied to the teeth through fluoridated toothpastes and mouth rinses. Mouth rinses containing fluoride in lower strengths are available over-the-counter. However, stronger mouth rinses can be prescribed as needed. Dr. Sundt will advise you about your child’s fluoride needs.
We strive to provide you with the highest quality care, including the use of
fluoride. For more information or to request an appointment, contact Waterford Dental Arts.
