Fluoride Treatment – Hillsboro, OR

Greater Protection for Growing Teeth

Children’s teeth are no strangers to cavities. While they’re trying to perfect their oral hygiene routine, they’re also likely to eat less-than-nutritious snacks and meals. However, even kids whose diets are nutritious and whose brushing and flossing seem on point can develop decay. This is where fluoride treatment comes in. At Infinity Dental Care, we strive to offer maximum protection for growing teeth. Safe and effective in combating decay, we invite you to call our office if you think your child could benefit from fluoride treatment during their next visit.

How Does Fluoride Work?

Fluoride is a natural mineral that is commonly found in soil, tap water, toothpaste, and various fruits and vegetables. When in contact with tooth enamel, it helps to remineralize weak areas so that they become stronger while also combatting future decay.

If it appears that dental decay is eroding the existing enamel, fluoride will offer a layer of protection against harmful bacteria and food particles that cause cavities (anything that contains sugars or starches).

What Can My Child Expect?

When administering fluoride to your child, you’ll be pleased to learn that the process is quick and easy. Not only is it completely painless, but it also requires minimal time. Our team will apply a fluoride varnish to the front surfaces of teeth. It will need to dry to ensure a protective coating, but this happens quickly. It’s recommended that your child not eat or drink anything for 20-30 minutes following fluoride application.
