Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and replaces important minerals that protect teeth from decay. Fluoride can even reverse the early stages of decay. Dr. Olson recommends using a toothpaste that contains fluoride daily. We also have a more concentrated fluoride varnish that we can place on your teeth to help prevent decay. Dr. Olson recommends this for most of our pediatric patients following their cleaning and for our adult patients that are more cavity- prone. For patients that have undergone head and neck radiation treatments or that have very limited saliva flow, custom fluoride trays are highly recommended to be used daily. If you have any questions about our fluoride treatment options, please do not hesitate to ask!
