Are fluoride treatments just for kids?

No, fluoride treatments are not just for kids. Adults can benefit from fluoride treatments too. Fluoride helps to strengthen and protect tooth enamel, which is especially important for adults who may be more prone to cavities due to weakened enamel from years of wear and tear. Also, fluoride treatments can help strengthen the enamel around crowns or restorations. While children often benefit from stronger fluoride concentrations in toothpastes and mouth rinses, adults may opt for professional fluoride treatments to get the extra strength protection they need. Professional fluoride treatments are highly concentrated and cover all surfaces of the teeth, providing additional protection against cavities and other dental issues. Regular fluoride treatments can also help to reduce tooth sensitivity. Talk to your dentist about whether fluoride treatments are right for you.
