Want to make sure your smile is as protected as possible with fluoride treatment in Kennesaw? Dr. Wadley offers fluoride treatments to protect and strengthen weakened or developing teeth. Professional fluoride treatments in Kennesaw, GA are applied in the form of a gel, varnish or a foam.
Professional fluoride treatments are generally applied during routine dental cleanings, every six months. The gel, varnish or foam is painted on enamel and is left to penetrate for several minutes. Fluoride for teeth is available in different flavors, making the process more tolerable. Once the allotted time is up, the fluoride is spat out.
To get the most out of your fluoride treatment, the gel must completely saturate all teeth. After the fluoride is applied and expelled patients are encouraged not to drink, eat or smoke for at least half an hour. If the mineral is ingested, it may upset your stomach. It may take up to 24 hours for the symptoms to subside, but this is not a serious condition.
