Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a safe, natural occurring mineral that can be used to strengthen the enamel of your teeth. At Hilliard Modern Dental, we administer professional treatments of the mineral to proactively combat tooth decay.

Why fluoride?

  • Help strengthen sensitive teeth
  • Prevent erosion from acid in foods and drinks
  • Restore the minerals within teeth
  • Protect from the development of cavities
  • Bolster enamel on the surface of teeth

How fluoride protects teeth

Our diets are often filled with harmful acids and sugars that erode the protective enamel of teeth over the course of time. This leaves teeth feeling sensitive to warm or cold temperatures, and can leave them susceptible to cavities.

While fluoride is found in most toothpastes and mouthwashes, there may be times when a professional dosage may be recommended. A concentrated application restores the protective minerals within the tooth's enamel, preventing cavities before they have a chance to develop.

Who benefits from fluoride

Children are typically the patients we recommend fluoride treatments to the most. As their teeth are in the early stages of development, fluoride treatments can protect them from cavities and decay. Our team will gently apply the mineral with a gel or varnish that is applied directly to the surface of the teeth.

At times, we may recommend professional fluoride treatment to adolescents and adults whose teeth are especially prone to cavities. We may also supply special fluoride rinses and gels to strengthen your teeth at home.
