Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride Treatment, Midlothian VA

Is it time for your preventive dental care appointment?  Local Midlothian, VA dentist Dr. Estes and the Swift Creek Dental Center provide excellent and affordable dental services in Midlothian, VA, including fluoride treatments.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in many foods and water.  Fluoride is constantly being lost from a tooth’s enamel layer due to sugar and plaque bacteria in the mouth and replenished with food and water.

Fluoride used to be considered only for strengthening the teeth of children, but new research indicates that fluoride from toothpastes, mouth rinses, and fluoride treatments are important in fighting tooth decay.

How Does Fluoride Treatment Work?

Fluoride helps to increase remineralizatoin—the regrowth of minerals on the enamel layer of a tooth—and can be applied as a gel, foam, or varnish.  Such dental treatments contain a much higher amount of fluoride than found in products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.
