A question that sometimes is brought up to me, do adults need extra fluoride? Depending on the situation, generally, they don’t need extra fluoride, but again, if you have an elderly patient that has a lot of root surfaces exposed in their mouth, and their home care isn’t as good as it would’ve been when they were younger, then added fluorides can definitely be a help, usually in a toothpaste. Sometimes, actually, we would do an actual fluoride treatment on an adult patient to help strengthen those root surfaces and make it more resistant to decay.
