Fluoride Varnishes CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Fluoride varnish treatments typically consist of 5% sodium fluoride in a sticky colophon or resin base, which helps the product adhere to teeth and flow into fissures and interproximal areas. The addition of alcohol expedites drying. Used as a cavity liner, a desensitizer, and for caries prevention, these fluoride varnish treatment products are typically easy to apply, low-cost, and safe. As a preventive, dental fluoride varnish has found an important niche for use in both pediatric and elderly populations at high risk for caries.

 

When used as a desensitizing agent, dental fluoride varnish is applied to the exposed area to seal the dentin surface. When used for caries prevention, a thin layer is applied to clean, dry teeth with a brush or applicator. The varnish dries to a dull film and forms a sticky covering over the tooth, becoming hard upon contact with saliva. If needed, floss can be used to pull the varnish further into interproximal areas. The fluoride deposited on the tooth surface renders the surface impenetrable, and purportedly prevents the formation of new caries and slows or stops decay progression.

    With the holidays quickly approaching, many dentists will begin to think of what they might purchase for their staff as a way of saying “thank you.” Before you consider out-of-office gifts, think in-office: what can you purchase now that might make their lives a bit easier in 2019? The Greater New York Dental Meeting is a convenient way to “get...

    Some of your adult athlete patients are at an increased risk of tooth decay. It’s a statement that seems like an oxymoron, given that active patients are probably otherwise healthy individuals. Unfortunately, the culprit is what many athletes consume on a regular basis—sports drinks and energy bars. “Adult athletes” doesn’t just refer to...

    Fluoride varnish treatments often present a dilemma. The patient’s hygiene appointment is nearly complete and you say, maybe not in these exact words, “Please hold still while I apply this gritty, funky-tasting paste to your clean teeth.” For patients, it’s an awkward feeling. For clinicians, it’s an awkward way to end an appointment, and you’re...

    Many dentists and orthodontists find it hard to impress upon young patients how important it is to brush their teeth regularly, especially if they are wearing bracket systems. Teenagers and adolescents often don’t get that they could end up with white spot lesions (WSLs) and cavities unless they take extra care with their oral hygiene while...

    Many people I meet from other states automatically assume that, in Wisconsin, we eat cheese. A lot. All kinds. Every day. Morning and night. We like our dairy products as much as anyone, but Wisconsinites have an especially “cheesy” reputation, partly because of the cheeseheads at the Green Bay Packers games. Americans eat over 30 pounds of...
