Fluoride treatments are recommended as soon as the first baby tooth erupts and can be applied every 3 to 6 months. This is usually determined by the clients oral hygiene and diet at home. Pearly Whites Plus believes in applying fluoride for our youths up to the age of 18 for the prevention of tooth decay.
Many clients that need chemo or radiation therapy face saliva reduction, which contributes to higher acidity and bacteria levels, who can contribute to tooth decay (beginning of cavities). For these clients, we recommended fluoride trays, which are used at home, to help re-mineralize and prevent cavities. Pearly Whites Plus will fabricate custom trays and provide clients with fluoride gel to help prevent the adverse affects of dry mouth on their teeth.
