Fluoride Treatments


 

Tooth enamel is dissolved and replaced constantly in the mouth. Fluoride can make that replacement material much stronger. Research indicates fluoride can help prevent cavities in children and adults in at least two ways:

  • Making the tooth enamel stronger against acids in the mouth formed by bacteria and sugar
  • Helping reduce the amount of bacteria on the tooth surface

Water fluoridation is a common practice in U.S. public water systems. However, bottled water, home treatment systems and private well water may not be fluoridated. The lack of fluoride for infants and children during the crucial formative years may contribute to tooth decay.

“Topical” applications such as toothpastes and mouth rinses can supply that fluoride. If you’re concerned about getting enough fluoride to protect your teeth, [Dental Practice] offers fluoride treatments in the office to make sure all teeth receive the benefits of fluoride.
