What is fluoride topical?

Fluoride is a substance that strengthens tooth enamel. This helps to prevent dental cavities.

Fluoride topical is used as a medication to prevent tooth decay in patients that have a low level of fluoride topical in their drinking water. Fluoride topical is also used to prevent tooth decay in patients who undergo radiation of the head and/or neck, which may cause dryness of the mouth and an increased incidence of tooth decay.

Fluoride topical may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about fluoride topical?

Do not eat, drink, or rinse your mouth for 30 minutes after using a fluoride topical. Do not swallow fluoride topical. Spit it out after use.
