Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride Treatment in Ashburn VA

Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay. It also discourages plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface. Regular fluoride treatments, along with brushing at least twice a day, regular flossing, and a healthy diet, will give you the best chance for optimal oral health.

Fluoride is a mineral naturally found in bones and teeth. Soil, rocks, plants, and even the air also have varying levels of fluoride content. While most people consume some fluoride from dietary sources, and many city water supplies are supplemented with fluoride, it isn’t always enough.

Even using fluoride-added oral products like toothpaste and mouthwash can still leave you fluoride deficient, though they are beneficial. Fluoride treatments in Ashburn, VA help bridge this gap.

However, excessive fluoride use can have side effects, such as white spots, pitting, stains, and bone density problems. If you’re worried about your fluoride exposure, feel free to ask our team any questions you may have during your regular exam and cleaning. In fact, we often apply fluoride treatments during these appointments if you opt to have them.

They take just a few minutes and are painless. We offer fluoride rinses, foams, gels, and varnishes, which may be applied using a swab, mouthwash, brush, or tray.

After the treatment, you may be asked not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow your teeth to absorb the fluoride. Depending on your oral health or Dr. Rizvi’s recommendation, you may be required to have a fluoride treatment every three, six, or 12 months.

In general, those at higher risk for tooth decay, such as children, coffee drinkers, and those with dry-mouth or weak enamel, will fall on the shorter end of that spectrum. Learn more about our dental mouthguards.
