Fluoride Varnish Treatment

Fluoride Varnish Application

Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps develop strong teeth and prevents cavities. People have been using fluoride for centuries to improve their oral health. It not only fights bacteria but also supports healthy tooth enamel. If you want to protect and strengthen your teeth and overall oral health, fluoride treatment can be a great solution, especially if you’re at risk of developing conditions like cavities and dental caries. At Carvolth Dentistry, we provide fluoride treatment as a part of our preventive dental care services.

Why Apply Fluoride?

When topical fluoride seeps into the outer surface of your tooth enamel, it eventually strengthens the teeth, making them more resistant to decay. Some dental products such as toothpaste and mouth rinses contain fluoride. Our dentists and dental hygienists at Carvolth Dentistry often recommend our patients get fluoride treatment twice a year to protect their oral health. Children should get the treatment during routine dental checkups to ensure healthy teeth development. 

Most foods and community water supplies are good sources of fluoride. However, you can also get supplements in the form of oral rinse. However, be sure to visit a dentist before using such solutions. It is important to apply or consume the right amount of fluoride, especially when it comes to infants and children.


Are you taking enough fluoride? 

If your teeth are decaying or you’re suffering from other oral health problems, you might need to consider monitoring your fluoride intake. Based on our dental exam findings, we recommend the use of professional dental fluoride treatments. While your food and water contain fluoride, here are some common reasons we recommend fluoride treatment: 

  • Poor oral hygiene habits 
  • Sensitive root surfaces 
  • Inadequate exposure to fluorides 
  • Inadequate saliva inflow 
  • History of dental decay
