Fluoride Varnishes Now Available at WingHaven  Pediatrics!

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that children see a dentist starting at 1 year of age or within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth, and that fluoride treatment be applied once every six months. We are happy to provide all of our patients with a list of excellent pediatric dentists close to our office; however, if you are not able to regularly take your child to the dentist, we can now    provide fluoride varnish treatment at well visits. Many medical insurance companies are covering this. Please contact your insurance carrier to see if you have this valuable coverage. If your medical insurance does not cover the cost of fluoride varnish our charge is $20.00. 
Are your child's teeth protected? 

Fluoride varnish is used to help protect teeth from cavities. The sticky varnish is painted on to the 
teeth so it stays  longer than other ways fluoride is provided. It makes the outside of the teeth harder 
and helps to prevent decay. 
Your child may qualify for fluoride varnish if he/she: 

Is covered by a Medicaid Plan
Is between 6 months and 5 years of age 
Does NOT visit a dentist regularly 

How is Fluoride Varnish applied? 

A small piece of gauze is used to clean and dry the teeth. The varnish is painted onto the front and back, top and bottom of the teeth with a tiny brush. It forms a sticky covering over the tooth and becomes hard as soon as saliva in the mouth touches it.  The whole process takes less than 2 minutes
Please do not brush your child's teeth on the evening of their fluoride application, but resume regular brushing with fluoride - containing toothpaste the following day. 
Is Fluoride Varnish Safe? 

Yes!  Only a small amount of fluoride is used, with hardly any swallowed.  Fluoride has been studied extensively over the years and experts agree that it poses no lasting health threats.  Occasionally children exposed to excessive levels will develop fluorosis in which they may have subtle white marks on their teeth.  We do not expect this from fluoride varnish.
