Fluoride is a mineral found in the earth’s crust. Dentists use this natural mineral to improve the health of your teeth. Fluoride treatments are a common service dentists administer to help combat tooth decay and boost natural minerals in your teeth.
Because of its natural benefits, fluoride is often added to food and water. It reduces tooth decay and replenishes minerals that may have been lost in a tooth’s enamel layer. Your dentist might recommend that you use fluoride fortified toothpaste or mouthwash to further prevent tooth decay and mineral loss in your teeth.

What is a fluoride treatment?
Fluoride treatments are quick, simple, and harmless. Dentists use fluoride rinse, wash, gel, or varnish to administer a fluoride treatment. One of these substances is applied to your teeth with a swab or brush, or swished like mouthwash. Once the fluoride has been applied to your teeth, your dentist will ask you to avoid eating for an hour and a half.
