Fluoride treatment is a type of gel or paste used as a protective shield to help prevent cavities. After your cleaning, your hygienist will coat the gel on your teeth and leave for about one minute, then rinse out with a diluted mouth rinse.
It is inevitable that plaque causing bacteria will begin to form within 48 hours after a teeth cleaning, which is why it’s important to practice good oral health care. Brushing twice a day and flossing once per day, or after each meal, will help to keep your teeth healthy and tartar free!
