Are you concerned about protecting your smile? Do you want to achieve a healthy smile without having to undergo complicated dental procedures? Taking preventative measures can help ensure long-term oral health. Fluoride treatments can be used for patients of all ages to protect teeth from damage. Smile Envy Dental Group is proud to offer this effective treatment to residents of Smyrna, Vinings, and surrounding Atlanta communities.
What is Fluoride Treatment?
Fluoride treatment provides added protection for individuals who have weakened enamel or tooth sensitivity. Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance that helps to protect teeth from acidic damage caused by sugar, plaque, and bacteria. The fluoride in water provides this protection, but sometimes, individuals need extra support.
Who is a Strong Candidate for Fluoride Treatment?
If you suffer from tooth sensitivity or have been told of some changes in your dental enamel, fluoride is an effective way to restore balance to the dental surface. Mild temperature sensitivity and enamel wear can be corrected using our effective fluoride treatment.
What is the Fluoride Treatment Procedure?
We offer several options for fluoride treatments. Depending on the patient, Dr. Fields may recommend a fluoride rinse or a fluoride paste to be used at home or as an in-office procedure. The fluoride treatment in-office procedure is very minimal and can even be done following a regular dental cleaning appointment. A fluoride gel will be applied to the surface of the teeth and allowed to dry.
What Can I Expect Following a Fluoride Treatment?
Immediately following the in-office procedure, the teeth may feel a bit “fuzzy” for a few hours. The fluoride will deposit into the tooth where the minerals are needed following the procedure, so eating and drinking should be avoided for several hours. Following that time, the teeth will feel smooth and eating and drinking can return to normal.
How Much Does Fluoride Treatment Cost?
Fluoride treatment varies in cost from patient to patient. Without a prior consultation with Dr. Fields to determine the fluoride treatment recommended, it can be difficult to predict the exact cost. Our office works with each patient to make financing family dentistry procedures, such as dental fluoride, a realistic option for care.
Dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost for fluoride treatments, but all insurance providers have unique policies. At Smile Envy Dental Group, we will review your policy and inform you of your individual costs for fluoride in our office.
In order to provide affordable access, we’re proud to offer patients financing options through CareCredit®. We can determine your eligibility before your appointment, so there are no surprises when it comes to finances. We happily accept many forms of payment including credit card.
We appreciate when individuals take preventative dental care seriously. Using fluoride to protect against future damage can help you make the most of your natural smile.
