About Fluoride Treatments
There are people who don't maintain a regular mouth care routine and this can trigger frequent disease and dental cavities. To aid growing or weakened teeth, a concentrated fluoride dose may be administered at DentalWorks Facility One by our dentists in Brookfield,WI to fortify the enamel. Fluoride is a mineral that is frequently added to municipal water systems. In addition, it is also in typical dental products like toothpaste in small doses to build up the enamel. A professional fluoride treatment at DentalWorks Facility One uses a safe, but concentrated dose of fluoride to shield the teeth against infection. Fluoride treatments can be applied in several forms (gel, foam, varnish) with two different choices of fluoride. This can be neutral sodium fluoride for individuals who have dry mouth and dental crowns, bridges, or dentures or acidulated phosphate fluoride for strong teeth.
"I will not go to any other place I love Kelli and Dr Adl I used to work with them and I've been their patients. I've seen both sides and they are amazing at what they do. I drive 45 minutes and pass dozens of dental offices but I only feel comfortable with these two. I've had filling I've had extractions done, cleanings and I'm about to be getting Invisalign next week I can't wait."- L.W. / Facebook / Sep 07, 2018

"Had to go for a root canal, which sounds miserable. The dentist put me at ease, made sure I was 100 percent comfortable the whole time, and it was a painless experience. I highly recommend this place, I'm almost looking forward to going back to complete the root canal."- S.S. / Google / May 05, 2018
What to Expect
Fluoride treatments are usually given bi-annually immediately after the patient's dental cleaning or as often as our dentists advise. The clean teeth are dried to stop lowering the amount of the fluoride, then the treatment is delivered to the patient as a paint-on varnish, gel, or foam that is allowed to penetrate for several minutes. To make fluoride treatments less unpleasant, our dentists will generally add a flavor chosen by the patient. Once the fluoride treatment is done, patients should be sure to spit all fluoride out of their mouth to stop negative effects after the procedure.
To make sure the treatment totally saturates the dental enamel, patients should not smoke, drink, or eat for at least a half hour after their fluoride appointment. Drinking any of the fluoride may produce mild upset stomach, but this should not last more than one day. While fluoride can be problematic in substantial concentrations, our dentists are cautious to give each adult or child a calculated dose of fluoride during their professional fluoride treatment at DentalWorks Facility One.
In-office fluoride treatments are considered a cautionary treatment and are most often paid by the patient's insurance for patients who are under 16 years old bi-annually as their teeth are developing. Insurance coverage for an older patient who gets a in-office fluoride service fluctuates, so DentalWorks Facility One will verify the patient's policy benefits and determine their amount of the bill. For patients who don't have dental insurance coverage, DentalWorks Facility One offers several payment options and financing plans.
