Fluoride Treatment

At Arbour Lake Dental Care in Northwest (NW) Calgary, our family dentists provide fluoride treatment to help make teeth resistant to decay and maintain a healthy smile.


What is a fluoride treatment?

Acid from plaque and bacteria in the mouth can cause tooth decay. Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent cavities and can help repair teeth in the very early microscopic stages of tooth decay.

A fluoride treatment is applied directly to the surface of the teeth after they have been professionally cleaned. This treatment takes just a few minutes and is available in the form of a rinse, foam or varnish. 

When is a fluoride treatment recommended?

Regular fluoride treatments are recommended for adults and children. A fluoride treatment may be recommended for you for any of the following reasons: 

  • Defects in tooth enamel caused by early cavity formation
  • The presence of active cavities in teeth
  • Active orthodontic treatment
  • Exposed root surfaces in the mouth
  • Decreased salivary flow resulting in dry mouth
  • Lack of regular professional dental care
  • Poor oral hygiene
