About Fluoride Treatments
There are adults and children who don't follow a good dental care routine and this can cause a lifetime of infections and cavities. To improve weakened or developing teeth, a special fluoride treatment may be given at DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg by our dentists in Reynoldsburg, OH to remineralize and strengthen the dental enamel. Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that is usually added to city water systems. In addition, it is also in many dental care products in small amounts to strengthen the teeth. A professional fluoride treatment at DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg uses a safe, but strong dose of fluoride to guard the teeth against decay. Fluoride treatments can be administered in three forms (gel, foam, varnish) with two different kinds of fluoride. This includes neutral sodium fluoride for those who have dry mouth and dental work or acidulated phosphate fluoride for normal teeth.
"Everyone working in Dental Works are very friendly and very thorough! The hygienist who cleaned my teeth, took her time doing so and explained things after completing it. The doctor who checked my teeth, made sure I understood what had been done and asked if I had any other questions. The young lady checking me out made sure I understood my billing and make sure I had a new date to come back six months later.

What to Expect
Fluoride treatments are frequently given every six months after the patient's dental exam and cleaning or as often as our dentists suggest. The clean teeth are dried to prevent watering down the concentration of the fluoride, then the treatment is given to the patient as a gel, foam, or paint-on varnish that is applied for a few minutes. To make fluoride treatments more pleasant, our dentists will usually include a flavor chosen by the patient. Once the fluoride treatment is finished, patients should be certain to spit all fluoride out of their mouth to avoid negative reactions after the fluoride treatment.
To confirm the fluoride treatment completely treats the teeth, patients should not eat, drink, or smoke for at least half an hour after their fluoride procedure. Consuming any of the fluoride may lead to short-term stomach aches, but this should not last more than a day. While fluoride can be toxic in large amounts, our dentists are careful to give each person an appropriate amount of fluoride during their treatment at DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg.
Professional fluoride treatments are considered a proactive procedure and are often paid for by insurance for younger patients who are 6 months - 16 years old two times a year as their teeth are forming. Insurance coverage for a patient over 16 who gets a fluoride treatment differs, so DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg will check the patient's policy benefits and calculate their out-of-pocket costs. For patients who don't have dental insurance coverage, DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg offers several payment options and financing plans.
