Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is an important element that makes up a significant portion of our teeth.  Without the proper amounts present, teeth are weaker, softer, mottled, stained, and more prone to decay.  Patients that are under 16 are good candidates for professional strength in-office fluoride treatments.  It takes less than a minute to do, and they can eat and drink within a few minutes afterwards.  For more on recommended fluoride usage and dosing, please refer to Dr. Butterfield's article here: What’s the deal with kids and fluoride?
