In brief: Tooth vitamins

A Fluoride treatment is usually applied in a tray directly to your teeth.
This allows the Fluoride to incorporate into your teeth which makes your teeth more resistant to cavities. I believe this is an important part of good oral health.

In brief: In office fluoride

The Fluoride preparation used in the dental office is a much stronger concentration than that in toothpastes or Fluoride mouthrinses that may be available in a store or at a pharmacy.
The Fluoride may be in the form of a solution, gel, foam or varnish. Typically, it is applied with a cotton swab or brush, or it is used as a rinse or placed in a tray that is held in the mouth for several minutes.

In brief: Protection!

Fluoride treatments are used during dental treatments if the dentist determines that that patient would benefit from the added protection.
