What Exactly Is Fluoride Therapy?

Fluoride therapy is a specific process of administering fluoride to promote better dental health. Most people know that fluoride is good for teeth: it fights off tooth decay and promotes good hygiene. But most people aren't aware of the different types of fluoride, and that they should be getting it from as many different sources as possible. Fluoride is present in toothpaste of course, but it's also in foods you eat every day like eggs and fish.

How Does Fluoride Therapy Work?

The process requires the dentist to use a foam, rinse or gel on the patient's teeth. These packets go onto a foam tray which can be put over the teeth. Once the patient bites down on the tray, the fluoride is released onto not just the teeth, but also all the crevices inside the mouth (e.g., between the gums, into the pits of each tooth, etc.) It only takes a minute, after which the mouth is suctioned so the patient doesn't swallow the element. Patients aren't allowed to eat or drink for about a half hour after the procedure.

When Should You Consider Fluoride Therapy?

Fluoride therapy is highly recommended for children because it's critical for their developing adult teeth. It's most effective when used twice a year on children up until the age of 16. However, adults can also benefit from fluoride because it is so effective at keeping teeth healthy. It's especially recommended for adults who have dry mouth, gum disease, and frequent cavities. All of these conditions put people at risk for rapid tooth decay. Even people with crowns and braces should consider this treatment. They're typically more at risk because a small part of the tooth will always be covered (making it more difficult to clean.)
