Fluoride Treatment
Tacoma, WA

flouride treatments for yound and old patientsFluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in all water sources, including oceans, lakes and rivers. Research shows that fluoride helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that cause cavities. Fluoride is nature's cavity fighter, helping repair the early stages of tooth decay even before the decay can be seen.

Fluoride Options


At Bird Family Dentistry, we provide two types of fluoride treatment for our patients; topical and systemic fluoride.

Topical Fluoride


Topical fluoride comes from toothpaste, mouth rinses, and topical treatment directly on the teeth (commonly at your dental appointment) either with foam or varnish.

Systemic Fluoride


Systemic fluoride is ingested, usually through a public water supply. While teeth are forming under the gums, the fluoride taken in largely from drinking water and other beverages strengthens tooth enamel making it stronger and more resistant to cavities. This provides what is called a "systemic" benefit. We can provide a prescription for your children as their teeth are developing.

Please call us if you have any questions.
