Content – Fluoride


It’s true that most people get some fluoride from drinking water. However, Dr. Helton and her team can ensure that you are getting the right amount of fluoride to maintain teeth that are strong and resistant to cavities. For most patients, this means periodic, doctor-supervised fluoride treatments. Fluoride treatments typically consist of a gel or varnish that is applied to the teeth and left for a short period of time. After treatment, it is important that you brush for a brief period so that your teeth can fully absorb the fluoride.
