Dunwoody Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that plays a key role in protecting your smile. Fluoride has been proven to prevent tooth decay in both children and adults. It works by making the teeth more resistant to acid attacks due to the buildup of sugars, bacteria and plaque. Fluoride also aids in the remineralization of the teeth, which helps to repair early areas of decay before a cavity actually forms. When it comes to preventative dental care, fluoride is an essential component.
At Pure Dental Health in Dunwoody, we proudly offer fluoride treatments for your family. We understand and implement the preventative tools that work best in keeping your smile healthy at all stages of life. Our fluoride treatments include both topical application and supplements.

Dental Fluoride Supplements
Fluoride supplements are prescribed by a dentist and can be in the form of liquid drops, tablets or lozenges. Supplements are typically reserved children ages 6 months to 16 years who are at higher risk for decay and who may not have access to a fluoridated water supply. Most people get adequate systemic fluoride through their primary drinking source or other fluoride-rich foods. However, there are times in which fluoride supplements may be needed. Our Dunwoody dentists know how to recognize the need for fluoride supplements and prescribe the appropriate amount for optimal oral health.
