Fluoride is beneficial at all ages
Studies show that fluoride is effective at preventing dental decay at all ages. Whether a patient is 5 years old or 90 years old, fluoride could be beneficial to help keep their mouth healthy and cavity-free!
- Children are covered by dental insurance. In almost all cases, children’s in-office fluoride varnish treatments are covered by insurance.
- For adults, fluoride is cheaper than a filling! Unfortunately, dental insurances usually do not cover fluoride applications in patients over the age of 18. However, we encourage all patients to consider fluoride as it is less expensive than needing a filling later on because the teeth weren’t optimally protected.
