Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and other places. While you receive a certain amount of fluoride from your diet and from using toothpaste with fluoride, we may recommend a fluoride treatment to further strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities.
Fluoride helps to strengthen your teeth and protect them from tooth decay. As you eat and drink throughout the day, bacteria, sugars, and acids constantly attack and demineralize the enamel of your teeth. Fluoride works to remineralize the tooth enamel, preventing tooth decay and cavities. In addition, fluoride can strengthen the teeth as they develop to make sure they are strong and healthy. This makes fluoride very important for children as their teeth grow in.
Our dentists and team members may recommend professional fluoride treatment during your regular dental checkup, and we may suggest further fluoride treatment if your teeth are prone to decay, or if you are not receiving a sufficient amount of fluoride from other sources. Professional fluoride is available in the form of a gel, varnish, foam or rinse. Fluoride treatments are just one of the ways our team helps you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
