What is Fluoride Varnish, and Why Should You Get It?

Fluoride is a naturally arising mineral used to strengthen tooth enamel. It can stop bacteria from growing and even reverse tooth decay. Fluoridation of drinking water is practiced in places worldwide to assist residents in maintaining a healthy smile. It’s in most toothpaste.

Sugars are turned to acids as our tongue breaks down food, which can swiftly erode tooth enamel. If left untreated, demineralization leads to weak teeth, cavities, decay, and tooth loss.

Our dentists know that once the acid destroys the enamel, Lily Dental cannot repair it, which is why our dentists suggest fluoride varnish for adults to add an extra layer of protection to your mouth.

What to Expect From Professional Fluoride Treatments

Dental fluoride treatments are for people of all ages. The brushed-on varnish strengthens and protects the enamel from further damage.

Fluoride varnish treatments are available at your twice-yearly dental cleanings upon request. If you’re prone to cavities, have weak enamel, or eat a high-sugar diet, you’re welcome to visit us more frequently. This easy and effective treatment can particularly benefit children, seniors, and individuals with specific dental needs.

Scheduling an Appointment

We advise waiting at least 30 minutes after receiving fluoride treatment at Lily Dental before eating or drinking. After your regular scheduled cleaning, we’ll apply the varnish. It is entirely painless and simply takes a few minutes to dry. If you’d like to make an appointment, please give us a phone call or email us. Our team will be pleased to assist you in finding out a convenient time for your appointment and answer any questions you may have about the fluoride treatment process.
