Dental Fluoride Treatments for Stronger, Healthier Teeth
As one of the most important elements to sustainable optimal oral health, our dentists are strong advocates of regular fluoride treatments for our patients.
Each and very patient has unique teeth as well as lifestyle behaviors. As a result, our team of dentists at Hawkins Family Dental helps each patient determine the ideal frequency in which fluoride treatment should be given.
Fluoride Treatments with Our Dentists in Gainesville, GA
Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay and in preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface. In essence, fluoride treatments are a safe and highly-effective way to minimize a number of different issues in one’s oral health.
When you visit Hawkins Family Dental, a typical fluoride treatment takes just a few minutes. After the treatment, patients may be asked not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride. Depending on your oral health or your doctor’s recommendation, you may be required to have a fluoride treatment every three, six, or 12 months.
