Each and every day your teeth loose minerals. This occurs naturally because of the acid and bacteria in foods and drinks. Luckily, our teeth and enamel get new minerals from the foods that we drink. Tooth decay is caused when more minerals are lost than gained.
For this reason, we are proud to assist our patients with a fluoride treatment to keep their teeth strong and healthy.
People of all ages can benefit from fluoride treatments, though we typically use them on children and teenagers as their permanent teeth come in. Adults can also benefit, fighting tooth decay while also strengthening teeth.
Fluoride treatments come in different forms. We can paint a varnish on your teeth or paint it on as a gel. If you wear a mouthguard, we recommend putting a foam into the guard to attach to your teeth. We can also prescribe liquids or tablets if you are not receiving enough fluoride.
Our staff is dedicated to assist you in receiving the benefits of fluoride. We are always happy to answer any questions that you have along the way too.
If you have any questions regarding a fluoride treatment or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (503) 774-3033.
