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!

Remember: Fluoride treatment is not a replacement for at-home brushing and flossing. Keep up on your daily oral hygiene habits and make sure to use a toothpaste containing fluoride.

Fluoride Treatment: What to Expect

We can apply fluoride at the end of your dental cleaning:

  • We’ll start with a clean mouth
  • Your hygienist will paint a protective gel on the surface of your teeth. We also offer rinse and foam options
  • We recommend no eating or drinking for 30 minutes

That’s it! Fast, easy, and highly effective.

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.
