About Fluoride Treatments
To help the overall health of the general U.S.. population, small amounts of fluoride are added to the water supply to help strengthen the teeth and prevent cavities. Fluoride, which is a naturally occurring element, is also added to most toothpastes for further protection to the teeth. However, patients with developing teeth ( 6 months to 16 years) and those with excessive dental decay can benefit from professional fluoride treatments applied by general dentist, Dr. Camelia Cooper at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft in Frisco, TX. These concentrated fluoride treatments are applied directly to the teeth to protect the mouth from bacteria and harden the dental enamel for stronger, healthier teeth.

"This was my 1st visit and I’m so glad I did! I’ve found my forever dentist! From the moment I arrived to the time I left the service was EXCEPTIONAL! During the covid19 pandemic I had put it off but the way they were up to part on sanitation made me feel safe! Dr Cooper, did things during my exam that at 57 I had never had a dentist do to make sure I was healthy and didn’t have any unseen issues. Kudos to her and her staff, I’ll be telling everyone I meet about Sweet Tooth Dental Loft! The atmosphere is calming and takes the edge off of going to the dentist. Signed Patient for life!

What to Expect
Professional fluoride treatments are usually given every 6 months to the Sweet Tooth Dental Loft patients who need the extra protection. Dr. Cooper may use acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) or neutral sodium fluoride, depending on the condition of the patient’s mouth. The fluoride treatment may be given as a gel, foam, or varnish that is applied to dried, clean teeth for 1 – 4 minutes. Due to the high concentration of fluoride in professional treatments, patients should never swallow any of the fluoride.
Patients should not eat, drink, or smoke for at least 30 minutes to allow the treatment time to fully penetrate the enamel. If any fluoride is swallowed, the patient may become nauseous, but when used properly, professional fluoride treatments are safe and effective. Patients may talk to Dr. Cooper about home fluoride treatments if they are at high risk for tooth decay.
