If you or a family member are at a moderate-to-high risk of developing tooth decay, a professional fluoride treatment can help.
The fluoride preparation used in the dental office is a much stronger concentration than that in toothpastes or fluoride mouth-rinses that may be available in a store or at a pharmacy.
Professional fluoride treatments generally take just a few minutes. The fluoride may be in the form of a solution, gel,foam or varnish. Typically, it is applied with a cotton swab or brush, or it is used as a rinse or placed in a tray that is held in the mouth for several minutes.
