About Fluoride Treatments@headingTag>
There are people who don't maintain a regular mouth care routine and this can trigger frequent disease and dental cavities. To aid growing or weakened teeth, a concentrated fluoride dose may be administered at Dental Arts Of Windsor by our dentists in Windsor, CO to fortify the enamel. Fluoride is a mineral that is frequently added to municipal water systems. In addition, it is also in typical dental products like toothpaste in small doses to build up the enamel. A professional fluoride treatment at Dental Arts Of Windsor uses a safe, but concentrated dose of fluoride to shield the teeth against infection. Fluoride treatments can be applied in several forms (gel, foam, varnish) with two different choices of fluoride. This can be neutral sodium fluoride for individuals who have dry mouth and dental crowns, bridges, or dentures or acidulated phosphate fluoride for strong teeth.

"I highly recommend Dental Arts of Windsor. Dr. Barry and Rachel provide me with the best service. I know a lot of people hate going to the dentist. But these two make the experience enjoyable. I've been going to this office for 7 years if that tells you anything. Dr. Barry won't steer you wrong when it comes to the type of work or treatment you need. Some of these other places out there will do work to you that you clearly don't need just to make a quick buck. Kim and Joe at the front desk are awesome too."- M.F. / Google / Sep 04, 2017

"Only three visits so far, but they have been pleasant for all of my family. Staff is very friendly, and helpfully suggestive without being pushy (for example to encourage cancer screenings or suggest toothbrush upgrades without pressuring us to do either). Looking forward to additional visits."- N.S. / Google / Aug 21, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
Fluoride treatments are usually given bi-annually immediately after the patient's dental cleaning or as often as our dentists advise. The clean teeth are dried to stop lowering the amount of the fluoride, then the treatment is delivered to the patient as a paint-on varnish, gel, or foam that is allowed to penetrate for several minutes. To make fluoride treatments less unpleasant, our dentists will generally add a flavor chosen by the patient. Once the fluoride treatment is done, patients should be sure to spit all fluoride out of their mouth to stop negative effects after the procedure.
To make sure the treatment totally saturates the dental enamel, patients should not smoke, drink, or eat for at least a half hour after their fluoride appointment. Drinking any of the fluoride may produce mild upset stomach, but this should not last more than one day. While fluoride can be problematic in substantial concentrations, our dentists are cautious to give each adult or child a calculated dose of fluoride during their professional fluoride treatment at Dental Arts Of Windsor.
In-office fluoride treatments are considered a cautionary treatment and are most often paid by the patient's insurance for patients who are under 16 years old bi-annually as their teeth are developing. Insurance coverage for an older patient who gets a in-office fluoride service fluctuates, so Dental Arts Of Windsor will verify the patient's policy benefits and determine their amount of the bill. For patients who don't have dental insurance coverage, Dental Arts Of Windsor offers various payment options and financing plans.
