Prone to cavities? Protect your teeth with a fluoride treatment
Because South Reno doesn’t add fluoride to its tap water, we often recommend a fluoride treatment as a great way to give your teeth an extra layer of protection against decay. This is a great treatment to add to your routine dental cleaning appointment. Contact us to learn more.
What To Expect During A Fluoride Treatment
We recommend that this treatment be completed at the end of your dental cleaning appointment.
Your hygienist will paint a protective gel on the surface of your teeth.
Avoid eating or drinking for 30 minutes following your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is fluoride bad?
Do I still need to have my teeth cleaned twice per year?
Is fluoride recommended for kids?
Yes, professionally applied fluoride treatments are recommended for all kids (even infants and toddlers when teeth are newly erupted) to reduce the risk of developing tooth decay. We may also recommend a dental sealant in addition to fluoride, depending on your child’s needs. Fluoride toothpaste is recommended for all kids by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, just be sure to use a smear or rice-sized amount for kids under 3 and a pea-sized amount for kids age 3-6. Have your child spit out the excess, but keep rinsing to a minimum to maximize the anti-cavity effect.
