What is fluoride varnish?

February is #NationalDentalHealthMonth and your NOAH Dental Team is sharing some important education on #FluorideVarnish along with a printable brushing chart just for you and your little ones!

What Is Fluoride Varnish?
Fluoride varnish is a protective coating that is painted on all of the teeth.
Fluoride varnish helps prevent new cavities and can help stop cavities that have already started.

Is Fluoride Varnish Safe?
Yes, fluoride varnish can be used on babies from the time they have their first teeth.
Only a very small amount of fluoride varnish is used.

How Is Fluoride Varnish Applied?
The varnish is painted on the teeth with a small brush.
It is quick and easy to apply and is well accepted by children.

How Long Does The Fluoride Last?
The fluoride coating works best if it is painted on the teeth 2-3 times per year.

If My Child Receives A Fluoride Varnish Treatment, Does She/He Still Need To Go To A Dentist?
Yes, fluoride varnish treatments do not replace the need for regular dental check-ups.
It is a recommended that your child visit a dentist at least once per year.
