Fluoride Treatments

What is fluoride?
Fluoride is a natural mineral that is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay by coating your teeth and preventing plaque from building-up, and hardening on the tooth’s surface.

Why we use it.
As a child learns to take care of her teeth properly, fluoride provides a barrier to reduce the spread of tooth decay.

What to expect.
Little Smiles offers fluoride treatments with different flavors for a child to choose.  A fluoride treatment is included in preventative care appointments.  Your child’s hygienist will provide you with further instructions regarding eating and drinking immediately following treatment.
