Another key to good oral health is fluoride, a mineral that helps prevent caries and can repair teeth in the very early, microscopic stages of the disease. Fluoride can make enamel replacement material much stronger. Research indicates fluoride can help prevent cavities in children and adults in the following two ways:
• Fluoride makes the tooth enamel stronger when combating acids in the mouth formed by bacteria and sugar.
• Fluoride helps reduce the number of bacteria on the surface of your teeth.
Our professional fluoride treatments generally take just a few minutes. After the treatment, we ask that you do not rinse, eat or drink for at least 30 minutes to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride and help repair microscopic carious areas. Fluoride treatments may be recommended every three, six or 12 months, depending on your oral health. Having a regular dental checkups will ensure your teeth to be healthier and stronger. Fluoride treatments can play a vital role in your dental health if your dental history suggests you have a greater chance of cavities or tooth decay.
If you’re concerned about not having the fluoride levels to protect your teeth, Tri-City City Dental Care offers fluoride treatments in the office to make sure all of your teeth receive the benefits of fluoride.
