Fluoride Applications

At Langston Amador Dental Group, we firmly believe in the power of preventive care to help our patients and their families maintain optimal oral health. The very first step in a preventive oral care program is to avoid cavities, which are the major cause of tooth loss and dental health deterioration. That is why we offer topical fluoride application treatments to protect our patients’ teeth.

When oral bacteria break down sugars in the food you eat, they produce an acid in the mouth, leading to the buildup of a sticky film called “plaque” around the gums and teeth. Without a proper oral care regimen including brushing, flossing and regular professional dental cleanings, this buildup can harden into tartar, causing cavities and decay.

In addition to proper oral hygiene, one way to strengthen the enamel of the teeth against acid attack, and prevent dental caries is a mineral called fluoride. Fluoride not only aids prevention of cavities but can also effectively repair tooth decay in its early, microscopic stages.

Fluoride can be obtained topically or systemically. Systemic fluorides are ingested by consuming fluoridated water, dietary supplements, etc. Topical fluoride application involves applying fluoride in gel or varnish form directly to the teeth, or the use of fluoridated mouth rinses and toothpastes.

Topical fluoride treatments done at a dental office involve a much stronger and effective concentration of fluoride. A typical fluoride treatment is a quick, painless, one-visit procedure which begins by cleaning the teeth to remove plaque and food particles. Then, a professional strength fluoride gel or varnish is painted on to the surface of the teeth. After the application, you are advised not to eat, drink or rinse your mouth for about half an hour, so that the fluoride can be absorbed effectively.

Take the first step towards protecting your dental health against cavities and tooth decay. Schedule a fluoride application treatment at Langston Amador Dental Group now. Call us at (954) 666-5657 to schedule your appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"I had been having intense jaw pain, so I went to Dr. Langston and Dr. Amadors office for a consult. They diagnosed and explained the issue and game plan in a language I could understand. They made me a unique night guard that has taken my jaw pain symptoms away and probably saved my teeth! The cool thing is that the technology of the guard is both hard and soft making it very comfy. Thank you Dr. Langston and Dr. Amador for a great experience but more importantly the solution I needed."

"Not only are Dr. Amador and Dr. Langston two of the best dentists clinically but they are extremely down-to-earth and sincerely care about you. They make you feel like family and going to the dentist relaxing and actually enjoyable. Ok...Well as much as it could be at least... Haha. If you need a dentist in greater pompano beach look no further!"

"I have been a patient of Dr. Amador's for at least 15 years. I first went to him after bouncing from dentist to dentist most of my life. I found him and his entire staff to be extremely professional, honest, kind, friendly and caring. The prices are reasonable and he accepts insurance, which has been a great help over the years. Dr. Amador does not perform unnecessary procedures or inflate prices. The years have only increased my respect and affection for all these wonderful people. Not only do Dr. Amador and his staff keep up to date with all the latest in dental technology, they treat their patients like friends and family, and genuinely care about us."
