Fluoride Treatment


Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride has greatly reduced the number of dental problems people have experienced in the last 50 years. Along with strengthening the enamel in your mouth, it can also help reverse decay.

Morton Dental Center provides fluoride treatments to patients who can benefit from the additional strengthening of their enamel.

How Patients Get Fluoride

Because it’s so effective against tooth decay, fluoride has been added to:

  • Water
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash

That said, there are situations where it’s beneficial to get fluoride from a dentist. Our professional applications provide more protection, working in tandem with the daily doses of fluoride you’re likely to receive in order to protect your oral health more fully.

Applications don’t take long, though you will need to abstain from food or drink for roughly 30 minutes after the fluoride makes contact with your teeth.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Fluoride Treatment?

We recommend fluoride treatment to most of our patients who are less than 18 years of age since this helps them avoid getting cavities before their enamel has fully formed. That said, fluoride treatment is also useful for adults, especially those who have tooth sensitivity or a history of cavities.
