Children’s Fluoride Treatments

It is no secret that children are susceptible to cavities. At Sweetpea Smiles, we provide valued solutions to help protect them from common tooth decay. Not only do we educate kids about ways to keep their teeth healthy and strong, but we also offer fluoride treatments as part of their routine preventative care. Fluoride treatments are a painless, quick and widely used procedure that has been proven to fight cavities.

Fluoride provides a means of protection for the tooth structure. While kids can get fluoride through community water or toothpaste, a professional fluoride treatment can provide the necessary safeguard against decay that your child needs as their smile develops and grows. If decay is neglected, it can lead to extreme pain and tooth loss. In fact, untreated tooth decay is a leading reason for missed school days. At Sweetpea Smiles, we can prevent, diagnose and treat cavities so that your child retains a confident, healthy life.

Cavity Protection with Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance that is known for battling tooth decay. Studies show that fluoride can prevent and even reverse early cavities. It works to strengthen teeth and remineralize areas where acid has begun to weaken the enamel (outer tooth layer). Essentially, the application of fluoride can create a stronger barrier against cavities.
