Fluoride is a natural mineral found throughout the earth. Fluoride is added to our drinking water, especially if you are living in an area with city water. Research has shown that communities with fluoridated water had fewer individuals with cavities, than those without fluoridated water. Fluoride has been known to help reduce dental hypersensitivity and prevent dental cavities. Fluoride can be applied on the outer most surface of our teeth to serve as a protective layer against bacteria. Fluoride can be applied to children and adults, but is most beneficial to children as they are growing into their adult teeth. Our office has two different types, foam or paint on varnish, as well as, several flavors.
