Fluoride Treatment
Renton, WA


Young boy receiving fluoride treatment at Kevin Kay, DDS in Renton, WAAs the name suggests, fluoride treatment is a professional treatment conducted by a dentist or hygienist that uses a high fluoride concentration to improve a person’s dental health and reduce the risk of cavities. This in-office dental treatment employs fluoride in the form of gel, foam, varnish, or a solution.

The fluoride dentists use in the fluoride treatment is similar to the one found in toothpaste. However, the one used in the treatment is of much higher concentration for rapid results.

Benefits of Fluoride


Poor oral health can cause many serious health conditions, including cardiovascular disease. Fluoride treatments help improve your oral health, which is a significant predictor of your overall health.

Fluoride offers various benefits for the teeth, which is why it is a key ingredient in most kinds of toothpaste, especially the ones for children.

•  Fluoride allows the body to better utilize minerals, such as calcium and phosphate. When reabsorbed by the teeth, these minerals repair weak tooth enamel.

•  By joining the tooth structure during the development of teeth, fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel, making them less susceptible to bacteria and cavities.

•  Fluoride slows down and may even reverse cavity development by getting rid of cavity-causing bacteria.


Benefits of Fluoride Treatment



Opting for fluoride treatment at the dentist will help you:

•  Reduce the risk of cavities

•  Reduce the need for frequent dental work

•  Slow cavity growth

•  Prolong the life of baby teeth

•  Slow cavity growth


By slowing down the growth of bacteria and preventing the growth of cavities, fluoride treatment can also help:

•  Prevent gum disease

•  Reduce toothache

•  Prevent premature tooth loss


Fluoride Treatments - Dentistry for Kids


Although people of all ages are susceptible to cavities, children are especially prone to tooth decay. Therefore, you need a good dental treatment to protect your child’s smile, and a fluoride treatment does just that.

Fluoride is a highly valued mineral for good oral health. This naturally occurring substance is popular for its interesting ability to not only ward off cavities but also reverse them at early stages. Children generally need a certain amount of fluoride to retain a healthy smile. Fluoride helps strengthen the structure of your child’s tooth.

Although your child can get their dose of fluoride from toothpaste, a professional fluoride treatment performed by a dentist is the best way to safeguard their teeth through the cavity-prone years of growth.

Fluoride remineralizes weakened areas of the tooth that acid attacks have harmed. Fluoride treatment serves as a barrier between your child’s healthy teeth and the damaging impacts of acids, sugars, and bacteria they encounter regularly.

When tooth decay goes untreated, it can cause a lot more tooth damage and unbearable pain. At Kevin Kay DDS Comprehensive Family Dentistry, we offer a range of family dentistry services that can help all your loved ones, including your kids. Our fluoride treatment is particularly popular among children as it helps reduce and prevent cavities, protecting their smiles.
