Fluoride is a mineral that helps keep your teeth strong. Fluoride treatments in your dentist’s office are a way to protect your teeth from decay and possibly even reverse minor decay in its early stages. Regular fluoride treatments are generally performed once a year and can help to keep your teeth as strong and healthy as possible.
Acids in the food we eat or drink and bacteria in the mouth all eat into the outer surface of our teeth. This process, known as demineralization, can allow acids to eat through our tooth enamel causing decay. Fluoride treatments allow your dentist to rebuild the enamel via remineralization. This process strengthens damaged areas and helps to protect your teeth.
Fluoride Treatment Services
While fluoride can be found in drinking water and added into toothpaste, the fluoride in those items is in smaller, less concentrated amounts than the fluoride treatments offered by your dentist. When you visit our office, Dr. Bowcutt can offer you fluoride treatments that use a stronger, more concentrated form of fluoride. Additionally, the fluoride will be applied directly to your teeth for maximum benefit. This allows the fluoride to begin the remineralization process quicker and where you need it most.
Treatments with fluoride can help strengthen your teeth, reverse minor decay, reduce sensitivity, and seal the teeth to prevent decay. The process is simple and quick and offers a host of benefits to ensure that your teeth stay as strong and healthy as possible.
