We Are a Fluoride Treatment Dentist in Granbury, Texas!
Fluoride is one of the most effective agents available to prevent tooth decay. According to the ADA, fluoride intake is often recommended for infants and children between the ages of 6 months and 16 years. Here at Berry & Berry, we use Silver Diamine Fluoride, which is a liquid substance that is applied to your teeth to help prevent cavities.
Fluoride is important because it helps make the tooth more resistant to plaque buildup due to sugar and helps stop decay. This is important, especially where primary and permanent teeth are developing.
What Can You Expect During A Fluoride Treatment?
Dr. Jason & Dr. Elizabeth Berry will apply the treatment immediately after completing a routine cleaning of your teeth. They will paint them with the fluoride liquid, which comes in multiple flavors that you can choose from. After the teeth are completely coated, your dentist in Granbury leaves the solution on for several minutes. They then rinse the mouth and asks you or your child to spit the rest of the fluoride out without using any water. We usually request that the patient refrains from eating or drinking anything for 30 minutes following the procedure. This ensures that the substance doesn’t wash off completely before it can provide the full benefit.
