Fluoride Treatment


A smile after Fluoride Treatment in Phoenix
Here in Arizona we drink a lot of bottled water, but we may be missing out on receiving a natural mineral that is found in tap water: fluoride. For many years, multiple studies have consistently shown that the presence of fluoride can lead to stronger teeth and fewer cavities. New studies are now showing that fluoride can prevent up to 75% of new cavities! Fluoride helps fight the acid attack from everyday food and beverage and can even reverse tooth decay.

You may ask, "Who needs fluoride treatments?" The answer is EVERYONE. While having fluoride in your toothpaste and mouthwash is great, the concentrations are so low that it is not enough to get the full preventative effects. At our office, we can provide or prescribe fluoride in much stronger concentrations that works to harden your enamel and protect your teeth from everyday bacteria that causes dental decay.

Those that most need routine fluoride treatments:

•  You tend to eat a lot of snacks and sugary items.
•  You have a lot of pits and grooves in your teeth where bacteria can easily get in.
•  You have braces, the tooth structure surrounding an orthodontic bracket are most susceptible to tooth decay.
•  You have a lot of dental work completed in the past, the postion where the natural tooth meets a filling or a crown is most susceptible to decay.
•  You have dry mouth caused by medications or by some other health condition. When you don't have enough saliva, it is hard to wash away the bacteria and any remaining food particles present in your mouth.
•  You have gum disease or recessed gums. These conditions can expose your root surface which is much softer in structure when compared to enamel, thus making it more susceptible to dental decay.


When is the last time you have had a proper fluoride treatment? Fluoride treatment should be a part of your regular check-ups if you want to achieve optimal dental health. As a wise man once said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
