Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps to strengthen your tooth enamel and keep dental cavities at bay. If you have a history of developing decay or are concerned about developing tooth decay, Dr. Kengskool may recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride treatment is great for cavity prevention and reversing the early signs of decay. Call Serenity Dental Studio to schedule your appointment for dental fluoride in Frisco, TX!

How long after fluoride treatments do you have to wait before eating?
Any time you eat or drink, acids and sugars coat the tooth enamel. After receiving fluoride treatment, it’s a good idea to wait about 30 minutes before you start eating or drinking so that the fluoride has a chance to coat your enamel. Once 30 minutes or the recommended time from Dr. Kengskool has passed, you are free to continue your normal routine. Remember, while fluoride provides cavity prevention, it is not a replacement for daily brushing and flossing.
