Flouride Treatment

Dentist Delivered Fluoride Applications

The use of fluoride gels, foams and varnishes are recommended based on an assessment for risk for dental decay, history of dental decay, and consideration of facts such as whether the patient lives in community or area where the drinking water is not fluoridated.

Fluoride Supplements
Dietary fluoride supplements are available only by prescription in North America. They are intended for use by children living in non-fluoridated areas who are assessed as being at greater risk for dental decay. Supplementation, in these cases, are indicated in order to increase the level of fluoride exposure to levels similar to those of children living in optimally fluoridated areas.
