Fluoride Treatment and Protective Sealants

Delivering fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral, to teeth is a common means of protecting them from cavities. Fluoride strengthens teeth, allowing them to better ward off plaque bacteria and sugars. Fluoride is generally received through drinking water (in places where public water is fluoridated) and through fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes.

Fluoridated water and fluoride toothpaste are generally enough for adults, though sometimes your dentist will administer a foam or gel containing fluoride during your visit to further fortify your teeth. Occasionally, some will need an even stronger dose of fluoride, which can require a prescription.
