Dental varnish is fluoride varnish painted on to the child’s teeth to help prevent or reduce cavities. The varnish has a pleasant taste, and is well tolerated by children. You can expect dental varnish 6 times between tooth eruption and age 3½. Most treatments will be performed during the child’s well child check.
The Oral Preventive Procedure consists of three equally important parts:
- Oral Evaluation and Risk Assessment
- Counseling with Primary Caregivers
- Application of Topical Flouride Varnish
