Fluoride Treatment
Surprise, AZ

Fluoride Treatment in Surprise AZFluoride is a mineral that can rebuild and strengthen the enamel of your teeth when applied correctly. Patients who come in contact with fluoride, from their drinking water, from their toothpaste, or from treatment prescribed by their dentist, such as David Frausto, DDS, will experience fewer problems with decay and the development of cavities. Our team at Surprise Smiles is happy to review the benefits of fluoride treatments with you and how we use it as a preventive measure for our dental patients.

Is fluoride only necessary for children?

Studies confirm that adults benefit from fluoride just as children do. Previously, dentists thought that fluoride was only beneficial when teeth were developing, so fluoride treatments were considered a process used for children. With new research revealing the benefits of long-term and continual application of fluoride, we continue to provide treatments on our adult patients to strengthen their enamel and slow the development of decay. Besides prescribed topical fluoride, David Frausto, DDS also recommends patients seek toothpaste and mouth rinses that contain fluoride to help fight decay.

Is there fluoride in my drinking water?

Increasingly, cities are adding fluoride to tap water. The best way to know if it is in yours is to contact your water company. Currently, 43 of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. have fluoridated tap water. Patients who get their water from a private well, or who consume mainly bottled water, may not be getting that added benefit and should speak with David Frausto, DDS about getting adequate fluoride.

Fluoride and a Dry Mouth

Patients may experience a dry mouth or decreased saliva production when taking a certain medication or being treated for a medical issue. Saliva is important to our oral health, without it, we cannot naturally neutralize acids from foods in our mouth, saliva also helps keep our mouths clean by clearing away bacteria and food debris. A lack of saliva leaves us susceptible to tooth decay.

David Frausto, DDS can help keep your teeth healthy and strong by offering tips for home care, such as drinking more water, and by strengthening your teeth with a fluoride treatment.

At Home and In Office Fluoride Treatments

We offer both at home and in office prescribed fluoride treatments.

At Home Fluoride Treatment

At home, prescribed fluoride treatments are provided in a gel format. We will review the directions with you, but be sure to read all materials before application.

In Office Fluoride Treatment

David Frausto, DDS is happy to provide you the fluoride treatment you need during your dental visit. With your mouth dry, we can apply the fluoride as a paint, a foam or a varnish treatment. The patient is asked to stay still for a few minutes with the treatment of their teeth. They will then be asked to not consume liquid or food for half an hour following treatment.
