In the world of dentistry, fluoride varnish has long been a revolutionary approach to preventive dental care. Many people get some level of fluoride treatment through their community’s drinking water, but fluoride varnish takes preventive dental care to the next level. It’s low cost or no cost through most dental insurance, it only takes a few seconds to apply, and it’s a great tool to prevent dental decay.

What is Fluoride Varnish?

Fluoride varnish is a protective coating applied to the teeth to strengthen enamel and prevent tooth decay. It's a highly concentrated form of fluoride that adheres to the tooth surface, providing long-lasting benefits.

What is Profisil® and How is It Different from Other Fluoride Varnishes?

Many of our patients over the course of 25 years in Turlock and the Modesto metro area have tried fluoride varnish. But, many people who do regularly get fluoride varnish hate the gritty sensation and somewhat bitter taste it leaves in their mouth.

If you’ve ever thought of declining a fluoride varnish treatment because of the taste or the way it feels in your mouth, we have great news for you. We’re now using Profosil®, which is everything you love about the protection fluoride varnish offers, without the gritty feeling and icky taste. It’s a great product overall, but it’s a gamechanger for people with sensory issues.

What are Some of the Benefits of Profosil® Fluoride Varnish?

Stronger Teeth: Fluoride varnish works by remineralizing tooth enamel, making it stronger and more resistant to acid attacks from plaque and bacteria.

Protection for All Ages: Fluoride varnish, like Profosil®, offers protection for patients of all ages. For children, especially, fluoride varnish can be particularly beneficial as their teeth develop, helping to safeguard against cavities during their formative years.

It’s Easy to Apply: One of the great things about fluoride varnish is how simple it is to apply. Your dentist or dental hygienist will paint the varnish onto your teeth using a small brush. The whole process takes just a few minutes and is completely painless.

Immediate Benefits: Fluoride varnish provides immediate benefits. As soon as it's applied, the fluoride begins working to strengthen your teeth, offering protection against decay right away.

Cost-Effective: Fluoride varnish is a cost-effective way to prevent cavities and maintain good oral health. Compared to the expense of treating cavities and other dental problems, investing in fluoride varnish is a smart choice for both patients and healthcare providers.
