As part of our focus on excellent patient care, Dental Care of Texas is pleased to offer the long-lasting benefits of fluoride treatments. If you are vulnerable to cavities or decay, fluoride treatments may be for you.

Fluoride is one of the most effective agents available to help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is a common mineral found in water and many foods. Even though you likely use a toothpaste and mouthwash with fluoride, the dental experts at Dental Care of Texas may recommend an in-office fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth and help prevent cavities.

Fluoride works by making your teeth more resistant to acid from plaque, bacteria, and sugars in the mouth. Fluoride can be particularly useful in strengthening your child's teeth as they develop, making fluoride critical for children as their teeth grow.

Regardless of age, fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay and is an effective way to protect tooth enamel from the negative effects of excess acid in the mouth. Using fluoride may also help lower the risk of gum disease.

Adults with certain conditions may be at increased risk of tooth decay and would, therefore, benefit from additional fluoride treatment. They include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Certain medications
  • Head and neck radiation
  • Gum disease
  • History of frequent cavities
  • Wearing Crowns, bridges, or braces

If you or any member of your family is subject to these risk factors, contact Dental Care of Texas to determine whether fluoride treatments would help to improve your dental health and reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease.

At Dental Care of Texas, our professional fluoride treatments are available in the form of a gel, varnish, or foam. These treatments use a fluoride preparation that is a stronger concentration than typical over-the-counter products. The application is a quick, non-invasive office procedure that requires no special preparation. Depending on your overall oral health, fluoride treatments may be recommended every 3, 6 or 12 months.

Providing you with exceptional patient care in a relaxed and stress-free environment is our top priority. Fluoride treatment is just one of the ways we help you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime. For more information about preventive dentistry and the benefits of fluoride, we welcome you to contact our office today.

What our patients say

I have been going to Dental Care of Texas for a little over a year now, and I love it. They get you back and all fixed up in a jiffy. I am currently in ortho too and they are getting my teeth exactly where I want them to be. The prices are great and the staff are the best. I would and do recommend Dental Care of Texas to everyone I know.

I have nothing but great things to say about Dental Care of Texas. Definitely most affordable around the area, and also have payment plans that help single moms like myself. Staff is always nice and very helpful. I have another kid that's going to need braces soon and I will be returning to Dental Care of Texas, without a doubt.

Been with this dentist office for 18 years! This office has not much of a turnover, and that says a lot; mostly same staff for years. The front office staff has been very helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to scheduling my appointments or working with my insurance, and I know I can trust the care I receive from their hygienists and dentists. All of that is really just a bonus to the awesome convenience of being able to go in on a Saturday!
