Adult Fluoride Options

     Most of us remember having a fluoride treatment as a child.  You might be surprised if your hygienist or dentist recommends that you have a fluoride treatment as an adult.  There are specific oral indications that fluoride therapy can be beneficial for such as:  recession and sensitivity; adult decay and  remineralizing weak areas in the enamel.  Research has shown adult patients benefit from fluoride application which is available in multiple forms these days.  In office treatments include foam, rinses and varnish.  Dr. Lindemann also advises home use prescription strength fluoride for patients that need it.
