Most dental insurance plans cover fluoride treatment up to age 18.
However, we may also recommend fluoride treatment for adults if you have an increased risk of tooth decay.
Fluoride is a mineral found in nature used to strengthen tooth enamel. Fluoride has long been recognized for its oral health benefits, which is why it’s added to most public drinking water supplies.
Benefits Of Fluoride Treatments
Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a result, our dentist highly recommends children get fluoride treatments to reduce their risk of cavities. Dental fluoride is a great way to lower your child’s risk of tooth decay so they can maintain a beautiful healthy smile.
To learn whether you or your child could benefit from fluoride treatments, don’t hesitate to call our office. We’re always more than happy to answer any questions you might have about dental care. Fluoride for teeth can be a great way to protect your oral health, especially if you drink well water.
