Fluoride Treatment in Helena, MT

Fluoride, a key mineral in many dental health routines, is naturally present in certain foods and beverages. Additionally, it can be directly applied to teeth for various oral health benefits. This mineral plays a crucial role in preventing tooth decay by enhancing the teeth's resistance to plaque and strengthening their overall structure, thereby reducing the onset of decay. Communities that add fluoride to their water supply often report fewer instances of cavities. The American Dental Association (ADA) and other esteemed organizations acknowledge these benefits of fluoride. At Melton Dental, we are proud to offer professional fluoride treatments for patients of all ages. For more information on how fluoride can improve your children's dental health, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Sean Melton in Helena, MT.

At Melton Dental, we offer an array of fluoride options to make the treatment accessible and comfortable for everyone. Typically, fluoride applications are done twice a year, right after a cleaning and dental exam. Depending on your chosen flavor, we prepare the fluoride in various forms, such as varnish, foam, gel, or liquid. This treatment is applied to the teeth for a specific duration, allowing ample time for the fluoride to penetrate the tooth enamel. For optimal benefits from the fluoride treatment, it's recommended to avoid eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes afterward.

Fluoride treatment at Melton Dental offers various advantages for oral wellness, offering a valuable addition to routine dental care. A few of these perks are:

  • Can help reduce tooth sensitivity: Fluoride treatment may reduce tooth sensitivity, which is mostly provoked by unprotected dentin or a receding gumline
  • Stronger tooth enamel: Can help fix weakened enamel and avert additional decay
  • Cavity protection: Can help teeth become more protected from cavities and decay
  • Suited for every age: Good for patients of every age, from children to adults
  • Contributes to long-term mouth health: Fluoride treatment works alongside daily brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings to sustain ideal oral wellness and prevent oral issues

I had an emergency during a holiday weekend and they were the only office between Helena and Bozeman that would help. Since that time, I’ve been going to Dr. Melton. He’s thorough and makes sure there is no pain during procedures. His staff is wonderful too. Highly recommend!
