About Fluoride Treatments
There are patients who don't have an ideal oral care routine and this can lead to many tooth decay and oral cavities. To help developing or weakened teeth, a professional fluoride therapy may be performed at DentalWorks - Pewaukee by our dentists in Pewaukee, WI to strengthen and remineralize the teeth. Fluoride is a natural mineral that is often added to tap water systems. In addition, it is also in most toothpastes in small quantities to fortify the dental enamel. A professional fluoride treatment at DentalWorks - Pewaukee uses a safe, but effective dose of fluoride to protect the teeth against cavities. Fluoride treatments can be given in different forms (gel, foam, varnish) with two different types of fluoride. This may include neutral sodium fluoride for patients who have dry mouth and dental restorations or acidulated phosphate fluoride for healthy teeth.

"I had never been to Dental Works before, my insurance changed and I needed to change my dentist. From day one they treated me like family, (I am not a fan of dentists , and they made me feel at ease)...At my initial appointment I explained to them my lifetime wish to have white teeth, guess what? I have white teeth, I received veneers on my top teeth and I could not be happier!..I never thought I could afford veneers but with the help of Kim at the front desk and Dr.Adl I could have what I wished for my whole life. THANK YOU DR ADL and Kim....you are the best. So glad I made the switch to Dental Works.😊😊😊😊"- D.H. / Google / Sep 11, 2019
"Dr. Adl and his staff have been wonderful treating an infected tooth I had with a root canal procedure while in my third trimester of pregnancy. They always made sure I was comfortable while also making sure my baby was safe with the antibiotics I had to take with the infection and also using multiple aprons while getting x-rays. Dr. Adl even finished my root canal while sitting up as it got very uncomfortable to lay flat for a long period of time. Kim and Corinne made sure all insurance aspects were completely taken care of making it a very easy process for me. The dental hygienists were all so kind and personable making dreadful appointments much more enjoyable. I'm so grateful and appreciative for the staff at this location! Would highly recommend to anyone!"- E.V. / Google / Sep 04, 2019

What to Expect
Fluoride treatments are often given twice a year following the patient's dental cleaning and exam or as often as our dentists recommend. The clean teeth are dried to avoid diluting the strength of the fluoride, then the treatment is administered to the patient as a foam, gel, or varnish that is left on for 1 - 4 minutes. To make fluoride treatments easier, our dentists will often mix in a flavor chosen by the patient. Once the fluoride treatment is complete, patients should be careful to spit all fluoride out of their mouth to prevent negative side effects after the treatment.
To ensure the fluoride fully penetrates the enamel, patients should not drink, eat, or smoke for at least 30 minutes after their fluoride treatment. Swallowing any of the fluoride may cause temporary nausea, but this should not last more than 24 hours. While fluoride can be dangerous in high doses, our dentists take care to give each patient a safe level of fluoride during their procedure at DentalWorks - Pewaukee.
Fluoride treatments are considered a preventative measure and are usually covered by dental insurance for children who are less than 16 years old twice a year as their teeth are growing. Insurance coverage for an adult who gets a professional fluoride procedure varies, so DentalWorks - Pewaukee will confirm the patient's policy benefits and decide their personal expenses. For patients who don't have dental insurance coverage, DentalWorks - Pewaukee offers many payment options and financing plans.
