What Is A Fluoride Treatment?

Fluoride is a beneficial mineral present in many different foods and liquids. However, it is often painted topically onto the enamel to produce several dental benefits. Fluoride may protect against enamel erosion by promoting resistance to buildup. Fluoride can also strengthen the tooth's framework to help reduce the onset of cavities. Communities that add fluoride to drinking water commonly notice fewer cases of cavities in their general populations. The perks of fluoride have been well-documented by the American Dental Association (ADA) and other important associations. The Dentist of Allen proudly offers regular fluoride services for people of all ages. To find out more about how fluoride can help your dental health, get in touch with our team in Allen, TX.

What Should I Expect from Fluoride Treatments?

The Dentist of Allen offers different fluoride options and flavors to make these treatments easy for all patients. Fluoride services are commonly recommended every six months following a thorough cleaning and dental exam. After you choose a flavor, our team will apply the fluoride as a foam, gel, varnish, or liquid. The fluoride remains on the enamel for a few minutes (depending on the type) to give it time to absorb into your teeth. To get the best results from the treatment, you may have to wait for at least a half-hour before eating or drinking.

You may experience some queasiness if you swallow any fluoride, but this should dissipate in about a day. In some situations, we might give you fluoride supplements or medical-grade fluoridated toothpaste to raise your fluoride intake. Parents should be careful to keep fluoride toothpaste and rinses away from kids, as it can be harmful if ingested in high quantities. Fluoride treatments can protect your teeth, but it's still important to clean the teeth with fluoridated products every day. We advise you to attend routine dental evaluations and cleanings at The Dentist of Allen to maintain your overall oral health.

Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!

I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.

I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.

Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
