DENTAL FLUORIDE IN CHESTER, VA

It does this by coating your teeth, preventing harmful plaque from building up and hardening on your tooth’s surface. There are two varieties of fluoride that provide this sort of protection:
FREQUENCY OF FLUORIDE TREATMENTS
A fluoride treatment within our office only takes a few minutes; after the treatment, we may ask you not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes so your teeth can fully absorb the fluoride. How often you need a fluoride treatment depends on your oral health; we may recommend that you come back to have regular fluoride treatments every 3, 6, or 12 months. We may also prescribe an at-home fluoride product such as an antibacterial rinse, mouthwash, or gel.
