Fluoride Treatments

What is a professional Fluoride Treatment?

Fluoride can be found in most dental products and public water sources. It helps to keep your teeth strong and healthy, so if you don’t get enough fluoride, or if you’re more susceptible to tooth decay, we may recommend special fluoride treatments. These treatments can be easily applied to your teeth to strengthen and protect them. They are ideal for pediatric and adult patients alike.

Why might a Fluoride Treatment be needed?

There are a few good reasons for why you may be a good candidate for fluoride treatments. We often recommend fluoride treatments to pediatric patients, but they can be just as beneficial for adults. Some of the reasons you might consider a specialized fluoride treatment include:

  • You aren’t using quality dental products
  • You aren’t drinking from a public water source
  • You’re prone to tooth decay
  • You have a child who doesn’t brush or eat properly
  • You’re searching for a method to further protect your teeth
  • You have problems with sensitivity

I hate going to the dentist, my kids absolutely adamantly refuse to go to the dentists, but Dr Nellie totally changed our perspective! I mean yes customer service is superb, staff is friendly office is sterile and technology is great, but what won us over is how unbelievably painless the whole process was! My daughter who screams bloody murder at the sight of the dentist did not even bat an eye when Dr Nellie put a crown on her broken tooth. She was literally stunned with how quick and smooth the whole procedure went. My teeth are super sensitive and cleaning is a torture for me. I barely felt anything with Dr Nellie, and my teeth are super clean, white and smooth. Absolutely loved the experience at her clinic, and 100% would recommend.

Just had a great experience in Federal Way Dentistry! Came for check up and broken tooth, Dr. Nellie offered me same day crown and like 90 min later I left the office with fixed tooth, new crown and clean teeth! I am really impressed with new technology and knowledge of the stuff! Federal Way Dentistry is my dentistry now.

Dr. Nellie Solovjov is very efficient, thorough, and gentle. She truly cares about her patients; I would recommend her to family, friends, and everyone, especially people with children, for she is very kind, compassionate, and patient. Her supporting staff, the assistants, dental hygienists, and office staff are all wonderful, caring people as well. 10 stars to Federal Way Dentistry!

Who is a candidate for these special Fluoride Treatments?

We can perform an examination to determine if you’d benefit from fluoride treatments. Most people who want fluoride treatments can safely have them done in our office. In fact, we can even offer you these special treatment options to be done along with other dental procedures being performed. Most children will receive fluoride at their bi-annual checkup appointments.

What happens during Fluoride Treatments?

We begin by cleaning and drying the teeth in the back of the mouth. The fluid fluoride is precisely brushed onto each tooth. You’ll be instructed to avoid eating or drinking anything for about a half hour to two hours after this special treatment’s been administered. You can have fluoride applied to your teeth at most of your bi-annual visits, or whenever they may be necessary otherwise. Fluoride works to strengthen and completely protect your teeth, so with treatment you’ll have stronger and more resilient teeth that are less prone to tooth decay. This can prevent the need for eventual fillings, root canals, and even extractions thanks to the protection provided by the treatments.

If you’re thinking of having these fluoride treatments done, and would like to learn more about this option, call our practice today and we will be thrilled to help out.
