Fluoride Varnish Facts
-Fluoride Varnish is a sticky, honey like material that is applied to the teeth with a small brush.
-Fluoride varnish can be applied 4-6 times per year, and can decrease further cavity development by about 38%
-A typical fluoride varnish application costs roughly $25.00 plus the cost of an office visit.
-Fluoride varnish is safe. It adheres to teeth once it comes in contact with saliva and is precisely applied to the teeth.
-Fluoride varnish is approved by the American Dental Association and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA)
This program should NOT replace your child's regular dental visits.
