Dental Fluoride Treatment in Medford, OR
Protect Your Teeth from Decay
Dental Fluoride Treatments for All Ages
Fluoride is a natural mineral that builds strong teeth and prevents cavities. Because the city of Medford does not add fluoride to its tap water, we often recommend fluoride treatments to our patients to help ensure a healthy, long-lasting smile.
Dental fluoride treatment can be used and applied in the form of a highly concentrated rinse, foam, or gel. A great add-on to your routine dental cleaning visit!

Answers to Your Questions about Fluoride
Is fluoride treatment worth it?
Fluoride has been a proven oral health treatment for decades. It’s a great extra layer of protection against bacteria. Fluoride is especially beneficial for those who are at high risk of developing cavities.
Is fluoride recommended for kids?
We typically don’t recommend fluoride treatments for anyone under the age of 3. And in younger patients, we may recommend a dental sealant instead of fluoride, depending on their needs. Children who use fluoride toothpaste should be supervised during brushing to avoid swallowing and ensure they rinse properly.
Why do I still need to have my teeth cleaned twice a year?
Yes. Although fluoride will help protect against cavities, routine professional dental cleanings are still needed to keep bacteria-filled tartar from building up and hurting your gums or causing decay.
