Fluoride Treatment Burke, VA
Your child’s growing smile should get all of the help it needs, which is why Dr. Treff provides some of the top fluoride treatment in Burke. Our dentist applies this mineral to your child’s teeth in order to make them become stronger and more resistant to cavities.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages the brushing of teeth twice daily with the appropriate amounts of fluoride toothpaste*. Research also indicates that in areas where public water is optimally fluoridated the caries is reduced up to 35%*. Fluoride-containing products including over-the-counter toothpaste, gels, and rinses are helpful in preventing cavities. At Pediatric Dentistry of Burke closely follow the AAPD guidelines that recommend professional topical fluoride treatment for children identified as “high” or “moderate” risk for cavities. We also make available toothpaste with higher concentration fluoride for patients diagnosed at higher risk for caries.
