Kickstart Your Oral Health With A Fluoride Treatment 

When it comes to fighting tooth decay, fluoride is the most effective. It is a mineral that is naturally present in varying amounts in almost all foods and water supplies.  The benefits of fluoride treatments have been well known for over 50 years and are supported by many health and professional organizations.


Why Do Dentists Push Fluoride?

Most of our diets have fluoride in them, but the amount is too small to be helpful. To make sure you're reaping the full protection from this powerful mineral, our dental experts may recommend treatments for:

  • Deep pits and cracks on your teeth.
  • Exposed and sensitive roots.
  • Bad oral hygiene.
  • Frequent sugar and carbohydrate intake.
  • Lack of exposure to fluoride.
  • Low saliva flow.
  • A history of tooth decay.

Fluoride Types 

Fluoride works in two ways:

Topical fluoride

This fluoride strengthens the teeth once they have erupted by seeping into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay.  We gain topical fluoride by using fluoride containing dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels.  Dentists and dental hygienists generally recommend that children have a professional application of fluoride twice a year during dental check-ups.

Systemic fluoride

This fluoride strengthens the teeth that have erupted and teeth still developing under the gums. We often receive systemic fluoride from food or city water supplies.

Our fluoride treatments are powerful, but nothing can beat regular teeth brushing! That being said, our Marysville Dental team can elevate your smile with a simple fluoride treatment today! Schedule an appointment for a brighter, healthier life.
