Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay and in preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface. A fluoride treatment at the Napa dental offices of Silverado Dental Care takes just a few minutes. After the treatment, patients may be asked not to rinse, eat, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride. Depending on your oral health or on Silverado Dental Care recommendation, you may be required to have a fluoride treatment every three, six, or 12 months. Please contact the Napa Dental clinic of Silverado Dental Care at (707) 240-8287 to schedule your next fluoride treatment.
