Enhance Your Oral Health with Professional Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride Treatments


Foothills Family Dental in Fort Collins, CO 80524, offers fluoride treatments as an essential part of preventive dental care. These treatments are key in strengthening teeth and guarding against tooth decay, contributing to long-term oral health.

Understanding Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral known for its ability to strengthen tooth enamel and fight bacteria harmful to teeth. Professional fluoride treatments at our office involve applying a high concentration of fluoride to the teeth, which is more potent than the fluoride found in water and toothpaste.

Who Needs Fluoride Treatments?

While often associated with children, fluoride treatments are beneficial for patients of all ages. They are particularly recommended for:

  • Individuals prone to cavities.
  • Patients with dry mouth conditions.
  • Those with gum disease.
  • People with crowns, bridges, or braces.

The Fluoride Treatment Process

The treatment is quick and painless. We apply fluoride in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish to your teeth. This application takes only a few minutes, and the fluoride begins to work immediately to remineralize and strengthen your enamel.

Benefits of Fluoride Treatments

  • Reduces the risk of cavities.
  • Slows the growth of harmful oral bacteria.
  • Strengthens tooth enamel.
  • Can reverse early signs of tooth decay.

How Often Should You Get Fluoride Treatments?

The frequency of fluoride treatments varies based on individual risk factors. We typically recommend treatments every six to twelve months.

Incorporating Fluoride in Daily Oral Care

In addition to professional treatments, using fluoride-containing dental products like toothpaste and mouthwash can help maintain the benefits of the treatment.

Ensuring Patient Comfort and Safety

Our team ensures that every fluoride treatment is conducted safely and effectively, with patient comfort as a top priority.
