Fluoride treatments are not just for kids anymore!  That’s right, if you are experiencing tooth sensitivity, enamel erosion, or unexpected tooth decay, you can receive the short-term and long term benefits of fluoride varnish treatments. Our office can include this treatment in your six-month visit.

 

As patients age and experience the medical complications [such illnesses as diabetes, acid reflux, and heart disease] their dental health can suffer.  Medications that cause dry mouth, radiation treatments, tobacco products or even the use of hookahs can lead to tooth decay, enamel erosion, and tooth sensitivity.  Fluoride varnish treatments can provide that extra layer of protection that you may need to insure the integrity of your teeth.

You will find that these treatments will reduce the hypersensitivity along your tooth margins and will help to improve your enamel resistance against acid.  In addition, fluoride varnish can be used to treat sensitivity after tooth whitening. 

Discuss these symptoms with us during your next visit for optimal dental health and comfort.
