With the high prevalence of public water fluoridation and fluoride toothpaste is there still a need for In-Office Fluoride treatments?

While approximately half of the U.S. has a fluoridated water supply with the average of 1.0 ppm, in many cases it is poorly monitored, therefore not always effective. Additionally while almost every U.S. household uses fluoride toothpaste, patient compliance and proper oral hygiene technique remains a variable. Providing a booster shot of Rx fluoride guarantees compliance and insures the patient is getting maximum caries prevention.
