What is fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral that is found in our soil, rocks, water, and air. Fluoride is excellent for preventing tooth decay, and in some cases, it can even reverse early signs of decay and prevent cavities from forming. Many cities add small amounts of fluoride to their water supplies to help prevent tooth decay for their residents. The main benefit of fluoride is that it strengthens the enamel of the teeth and can actually result in new enamel being less susceptible to bacteria and tooth decay. This is why fluoride is used in toothpaste and why fluoride treatments are recommended for children and patients who are prone to developing cavities.

Is fluoride dangerous?

In small quantities, fluoride is perfectly safe. It’s only when too much is consumed that fluoride poses a health risk. It’s uncommon for patients to consume too much fluoride unless they regularly swallow toothpaste or take too many fluoride supplements. For this reason, we recommend children only use pea-sized amounts of toothpaste and be supervised by an adult while brushing their teeth to ensure that they are spitting and rinsing properly afterward. Fluoride cleanings are done by dental professionals who know how to perform fluoride treatments effectively and safely, making them perfectly safe for patients to utilize.

Can my kids have fluoride treatments?

Fluoride treatments are highly recommended for children. In fact, many insurance plans will cover fluoride treatments for patients under 18 years old due to the benefits that fluoride treatments offer children. Because children’s teeth are still developing for years after they grow in, fluoride cleanings can strengthen their teeth as they develop and benefit the child far into the future. Since fluoride treatments are so quick, easy, and painless, we recommend fluoride cleanings for patients of all ages who would like to strengthen their tooth enamel and reduce their risk for cavities.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
