Fluoride Treatment – Blackwell, OK

Combatting Tooth Decay from the Start

At Blackwell Dentistry, our team of dentists takes pride in offering some of the best dental services that are designed to better protect you and your family’s oral health. Children often require additional help in combatting common dental problems, especially tooth decay, because their manual dexterity is not yet fully developed. This makes it difficult for them to effectively clean their teeth in a way that successfully removes plaque and tartar accumulations, putting them at risk for cavities. To combat this problem, we are pleased to offer fluoride treatments during their regular checkups. To speak to a dentist about this process or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today.

What Is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a natural mineral that is used to combat tooth decay and strengthen enamel. It is found in water sources and most toothpaste brands, but should your little one require additional help, it can be applied manually during their regular dental checkup.

What Are the Benefits?

Because of the many benefits fluoride can provide to both children and adults, most municipal water supplies incorporate it so that it will aid in the development of healthy teeth by preventing tooth decay. It also:

Protects the outermost layer of the tooth (enamel), helping to strengthen it and prevent damage or injury
Fights off harmful plaque and tartar that can lead to tooth decay
Serves as a beneficial solution for individuals prone to cavity formation (children)
Is quick to apply and completely painless
Requires no additional appointments, as it can be applied during a regular visit

How Does Treatment Work?

Once your child’s teeth are fully cleaned, and a children’s dentist has examined their smile, you can request that a fluoride treatment be administered before leaving.

During this process, which takes only a few minutes, our team will use a small brush applicator to apply the fluoride to the surfaces of your child’s teeth. Allowing the topical application to dry, you and your child will be cleared to leave and resume normal activity.

Aftercare Instructions

After your child receives a fluoride treatment, you will need to make sure their teeth and gums remain healthy at home, in-between appointment. Just because this extra varnish is applied doesn’t mean it will not wear off with time.

A few things you can do to make sure tooth decay remains at bay include:

Observe and/or help your child brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste as well as floss at least once before bed and rinse with an antimicrobial mouthwash
Limit their sugar consumption, as this can quickly cause cavities to develop
Schedule their next appointment before you leave our office

We have been coming to Blackwell dentistry for years now. We love the special things they do to give back to their customers as well as their community. I am always seeing new things there are doing to give back and to interact with their patients and others. The last time we were there we had 3 new dental assistants. We loved all three! Marfa was so thorough with her cleaning. The most I’ve personally ever seen an assistant do anywhere on a kid. She taught my kids new things as well as told them the reasons for each thing. It was very educational to them and to me as well. Melody was with my 5 year old and she was so great with her. She really focused on her having fun and enjoying the dentist. She was so great with the kids it made me want to be more patient and better with them as well. I know she was just doing her every day job but you never know who is watching and can be inspired by your attitude. I wasn’t in the room with Michaiah but she was very nice and informative when I spoke with her. The ladies at the front desk are as always the sweetest and most helpful. We will continue our business at Blackwell Dentistry for as long as we can, and you should as well!
