Frequently Asked Questions
I am an adult. Why do I need fluoride?
Fluoride is not just for kids. Through the aging process, adult teeth need all the additional defense that they can get. Many medications and poor diets can weaken our enamel over time. Fluoride can help provide extra resistance to cavities and provide strength with professional applications.
My insurance only covers it up to the age of 18. I don’t want to pay for it.
Unfortunately, insurances rarely cover 100% of any procedure. At Bacsa Family Dental and Implant Center we do not allow insurance to dictate what is best for the needs of patients. The skilled Hygiene team will discuss the benefits and options of fluoride with you at your appointment. We believe in trying to take every ounce of prevention to save you money in the long run in costly procedures. Fluoride is actually a low-cost way to keep your teeth as healthy and strong as possible.
