Keep your teeth strong and healthy with us.
Fluoride, a natural mineral abundant in the earth's crust and our water and food supply, is the champion in the fight against tooth decay. This unsung hero helps reconstruct and strengthen tooth enamel, safeguarding your smile from the constant onslaught of harmful bacteria and acids.
Regular exposure to fluoride is paramount for both children and adults. A lack of oral care, including sufficient fluoride, can negatively affect your overall health, resulting in more complex or severe issues down the road. This is where Sage Dental shines with our experienced team's commitment to preventative care, using tools like periodontal probing and the iTero Scanner to evaluate tissue changes over time.
Fluoride treatment at Sage Dental is a straightforward and painless procedure. It typically involves applying a high-concentration fluoride solution, gel, varnish, or foam onto your teeth. These specialized treatments contain a much higher level of fluoride than that found in your everyday toothpaste or mouthwash, offering additional protection for your smile.
Starting fluoride treatments at a young age is a proactive step towards a lifetime of dental health. Early exposure helps children's developing teeth become resistant to decay, ensuring a strong and functional smile as they grow.
Contrary to popular belief, fluoride treatment is not solely for children. Adults can reap significant benefits too! Especially if they're at high risk of tooth decay due to conditions like dry mouth, gum disease, or a history of frequent cavities.
One of the significant benefits of fluoride treatment is its impressive ability to combat tooth decay. It does so by making teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.
Over time, fluoride can aid in the remineralization of teeth, effectively rebuilding weakened tooth enamel and reversing early signs of tooth decay. It can create a stronger, more decay-resistant outer surface on your teeth.
The cost of fluoride treatment can vary depending on your specific needs and the frequency of treatments. It's best to consult with your dentist at Sage Dental for an accurate estimate.
Yes—most often, dental insurance plans cover fluoride treatments, especially for children. However, it's crucial to review your insurance policy or discuss with your provider to understand your coverage.
At Sage Dental, we understand the role of comprehensive oral care in maintaining a radiant smile. Besides fluoride treatment, our services include different types of dental fillings.
