Convenient Appointments & Comprehensive Care
We offer convenient appointment hours, including early mornings when you need to see us before work. With all of our dental services, your comfort is our top priority. We work hard to make every person feel at ease, no matter what type of treatment we are performing.
Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay by coating your teeth and preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth's surface.
Fluoride comes in two varieties: topical and systemic
Topical fluoride is applied directly to the tooth and includes toothpastes and mouth rinses.
Systemic fluorides are generally only used by your dentist and are not often available for at-home use. Systemic fluoride treatments are generally designed to help protect the oral health of children undergoing dental procedures. Fluoride used in the dentist/orthodontist office is often a much stronger concentration than in toothpaste or mouthwash but is available at some drug stores or a pharmacy (ask Dr. Babcock before purchasing professional-strength fluoride).
