Fluoride Treatment in Okemos, MI

Do you want to give your child every opportunity to have a beautiful and healthy smile when they reach adulthood? If so, there is nothing more important, pain-free, and cost-effective that you can do for them than having them get fluoride treatment from our dentists near you at Okemos Smile Center.

No doubt you’ve heard about the importance of fluoride to dental health, and you most likely use at-home products fortified with this important mineral. Still, by adding a separate professional fluoride treatment, you’ve taken every precaution needed to reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Benefits of Fluoride Treatment

The high concentration of fluoride in the treatments that our dentists in Okemos, MI use for preventive dental care provide the following benefits over anything that can be purchased over the counter (OTC):

  • They help reinforce the weak enamel of teeth and create a barrier against decay.
  • They can slow (and, in some cases, reverse) the development of cavities.
  • They reduce the likelihood of needing expensive dental work or tooth extraction.
  • They can help prevent gum disease and the need for periodontal surgery.
  • And more!

As you can see, fluoride treatments can play a vital role in your and your child’s current dental health and future dental health. But don’t just take our word for it. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that fluoride treatments can reduce other health conditions such as cardiovascular disease.

A Gentle Procedure for Patients of All Ages

When you visit our dentists near you for fluoride treatment, you’ll discover how simple and pain-free this added protection is. The procedure can be completed in minutes and involves little more than painlessly applying liquid fluoride to the surface and crevices of teeth. The treatment will prevent decay, kill bacteria, and stop bacteria breeding for several months.

For the earliest protection in children, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recommended fluoride treatment as soon as children’s teeth begin to grow. What better way to have your child learn how pain-free and fun a dental appointment can be at an early age?
