Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral and can be found in many foods. It is also added to many water supplies. While you receive a certain amount of fluoride due to your diet and from using fluoridated toothpaste when brushing, our dentists may recommend a professional fluoride treatment if your teeth are prone to decay.
Fluoride remineralizes your tooth enamel to strengthen and protect them from the harmful, decay-causing bacteria in your mouth. Your tooth enamel becomes demineralized as you eat and drink throughout the day due to the bacteria, sugars and acids in your mouth attacking the teeth. A fluoride treatment will help strengthen the enamel to prevent cavities and keep your teeth strong and healthy.
Fluoride treatments are available in the forms of gel, varnish or foam. Professional treatment can be provided by our dentists in just a few minutes as part of your regular dental appointments. During your checkups, our dentists will examine your mouth to determine if your teeth are prone to decay or if you are not receiving enough fluoride from other sources.
