What is fluoride treatment?
Typically a component in many preventive dental health plans, fluoride is a beneficial substance contained in some foods and liquids. At Madison Avenue Dentists, it is often painted on the enamel to offer additional dental benefits. Fluoride can fight off tooth decay by allowing the enamel to be more resistant to tartar. This mineral will additionally reinforce the tooth's framework to help minimize the first signs of decay. Communities that add fluoride to drinking sources usually have decreased instances of cavities among their residents. These profits of fluoride have been recognized by the ADA (American Dental Association) and additional reputable organizations. Our team happily provides routine fluoride treatments in our office.

Fluoride Treatment FAQs
How long do the results of fluoride treatment last?
While the fluoride varnish itself will only stay on the teeth until it has been brushed away, the benefits of the treatment will last for several months. In most cases, we recommend undergoing fluoride treatment about once every 3 – 4 months.
Will I be able to eat and/or drink after fluoride treatment?
In order to ensure the best possible results, we recommend patients do not eat or drink for at least 30 minutes after their treatment. This time ensures the fluoride is able to properly settle and protect the teeth.
Does fluoride treatment whiten the teeth?
Yes. In addition to protecting the teeth from cavities and decay, fluoride treatment will also help to whiten the teeth. This ensures our patients' smiles remain healthy and stunning.
