Fluoride Treatments Gainesville, GA

When it comes to protecting your smile, it requires you to be actively involved in all aspects of oral health. Ignoring your oral health is simply asking for cavities, decay, and tooth loss – all of which can lead to significant issues with the decline of your overall health. Flossing daily, brushing your teeth twice a day, and making regular dental visits a priority are essential components of actively participating in your oral health. For many people, this is enough. However, millions of Americans are more susceptible to oral health concerns. Dentists offer special treatments to these patients, as well as to anyone else, who wish help to protect their teeth between dental visits.

Fluoride treatments are simple, quick, and painless treatments that have been used by dentists for decades to protect their patients’ teeth. Fluoride is well known to help prevent cavities by strengthening the tooth enamel and making the teeth more resistant to decay. Oral bacteria create plaque inside the mouth that coats the teeth on a daily basis. While many people successfully keep plaque at bay between dental visits by flossing and brushing, others need extra help.

Children and adults can both benefit from fluoride treatments. Children’s teeth are much softer than adult teeth, thus they are more vulnerable to developing cavities. While adult teeth are harder, without proper care or with a genetic predisposition to be cavity-prone, they are also prone to decay.

If any of the following apply to you or your children, ask about fluoride treatments:

  • Well water is your main source of water
  • Poor diet
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Dry mouth
  • Acid reflux
  • Irregular dental visits
  • Gum recession
  • An eating disorder
  • Alcohol or drug use (including tobacco use)
  • Active orthodontic treatment
  • The use of certain medications
  • Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Bruce Y.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
