Fluoride Treatments

What is a professional Fluoride Treatment?

Fluoride can be found in most dental products and public water sources. It helps to keep your teeth strong and healthy, so if you don’t get enough fluoride, or if you’re more susceptible to tooth decay, we may recommend special fluoride treatments. These treatments can be easily applied to your teeth to strengthen and protect them. They are ideal for pediatric and adult patients alike.

Why Might A Fluoride Treatment Be Needed

Why might a Fluoride Treatment be needed?

There are a few good reasons for why you may be a good candidate for fluoride treatments. We often recommend fluoride treatments to pediatric patients, but they can be just as beneficial for adults. Some of the reasons you might consider a specialized fluoride treatment include:

  • You aren’t using quality dental products
  • You aren’t drinking from a public water source
  • You’re prone to tooth decay
  • You have a child who doesn’t brush or eat properly
  • You’re searching for a method to further protect your teeth
  • You have problems with sensitivity
They make you feel like you are the most important person in the world. The way they cater to you and make sure you are comfortable and happy! I have never met such nice people.

Who is a candidate for these special Fluoride Treatments?

We can perform an examination to determine if you’d benefit from fluoride treatments. Most people who want fluoride treatments can safely have them done in our office. In fact, we can even offer you these special treatment options to be done along with other dental procedures being performed. Most children will receive fluoride at their bi-annual checkup appointments.

What happens during Fluoride Treatments?

We begin by cleaning and drying the teeth in the back of the mouth. The fluid fluoride is precisely brushed onto each tooth. You’ll be instructed to avoid eating or drinking anything for about a half hour to two hours after this special treatment’s been administered. You can have fluoride applied to your teeth at most of your bi-annual visits, or whenever they may be necessary otherwise. Fluoride works to strengthen and completely protect your teeth, so with treatment you’ll have stronger and more resilient teeth that are less prone to tooth decay. This can prevent the need for eventual fillings, root canals, and even extractions thanks to the protection provided by the treatments.

If you’re thinking of having these fluoride treatments done, and would like to learn more about this option, call our practice today and we will be thrilled to help out.

Our dear patients,

We hope that this message reaches you well and in good spirits during this trying time. As this global pandemic continues to run its course, we sincerely hope that you are doing your best to take care of yourself physically and mentally. While we are unable to operate business as usual, we are still here for you in cases of emergency. If you find that you are experiencing dental pain, tooth fracture, uncontrolled oral bleeding, and/or extreme sensitivity, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 404-549-2650. We are available for virtual consults or will get you scheduled to come into the office.

Unfortunately, we will be operating in this limited fashion for an uncertain amount of time and will be sure to notify you once it is safe to continue non-emergency treatment. Here, at Brookhaven Dental Group, we have always practiced CDC and OSHA standards of infection and will continue to operate only under their direction.

In the spirit of a line from a poem that China sent to Italy, “We are all waves from the same sea.” Meaning that no matter where you are or how this pandemic may be affecting you, we’re all in it together. The ebb and flow of life right now is not what we’re used to but staying in place is necessary to get us to our new normal quicker.

Thank you to each one of you for being such a vital part of the reason why BDG just celebrated 2 years of being in practice. We’re here when you need us and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be well,
Dr. Brown
