Fluoride & Varnish Treatments Help Protect Your Child’s Smile

A naturally occurring substance that strengthens tooth enamel and fights existing tooth decay, fluoride treatments help protect your child’s smile in the short and long term. At Childrens Dentistry of Texas & Orthodontics in Richmond, we recommend that children have fluoride professionally applied to their teeth every six months.

What steps are involved with fluoride treatment?

After we’ve cleaned your child’s teeth during their regular checkup appointment, we’ll apply a topical fluoride solution – which is available via gel, foam, or varnish – to their teeth. The fluoride treatment will adhere to and begin strengthening their enamel as soon as it’s applied!

Who is a good candidate for this treatment and how often should it be repeated?

Because fluoride offers protective and preventive benefits, it’s recommended for children (and adults!) of all ages. Along with the fact that it will help shield your child’s smile, it’s also beneficial since the application is painless and quick, making it ideal for all patients.

When it comes to how often to have your child’s teeth treated, we generally recommend that fluoride varnishes be reapplied every six months.
