Fluoride treatment in Deerfield, Illinois, can help protect your teeth and smile from cavities! Our experienced dentists may recommend fluoride treatment for anyone who is at greater risk of developing tooth decay. Fluoride is also frequently provided as a preventive treatment for children whose teeth are still growing and developing.
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral and can be found in many different foods. It is also often incorporated into local water supplies. While you will receive a certain amount of fluoride due to your diet and from using toothpaste or mouth rinses containing fluoride, our dentists may recommend professional fluoride treatments to further strengthen your teeth against tooth decay.
Fluoride treatments can be performed in just a few minutes as part of your regular dental checkups. This treatment is usually available in the form of a gel, varnish or foam. It is applied to your teeth (often using a tray that is inserted into your mouth), where it will work to strengthen your teeth and keep them healthy.
We invite you to call Galliani, Mulvaney and Associates at (847) 282-4955 for more information about fluoride treatments and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert Galliani or Dr. Larry Mulvaney. We look forward to helping you care for your smile!
