Do you want to maintain a strong and successful oral health, preventing every dental issue in the world today? If so, fluoride is your new best friend.

Fluoride is a natural mineral that can be found in things like food and water. However, there are times when you might not get enough fluoride exposure each day to keep your teeth in tip-top shape, which is why it’s important to take advantage of fluoride treatments regularly. Some ways to boost your fluoride exposure is by brushing with fluoride toothpaste, rinsing your mouth with fluoride mouthwash, and receiving a professional fluoride treatment.

The fluoride treatment Dr. Lida M. Vargas offers at our office is simple, easy, and painless. The treatment typically comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish, and it helps your teeth survive by giving them the ability to combat plaque and bacteria. After your professional dental cleaning and exam, your hygienist will place the fluoride onto your teeth and will set a timer. As the time passes, the minerals will soak into your smile. Once the time is up, you will rinse your mouth free from the fluoride treatment.
