Why is fluoride considered nature’s best cavity fighter? For one, it has been proven in studies to work effectively and efficiently at strengthening your tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is the hard yet thin substance on your teeth that protects the inner tooth from damage. However, tooth enamel can easily be damaged or eroded, so any help it can get is essential in keeping your mouth safe from the effects of tooth decay and gum disease.
Although fluoride is recommended for most ages beyond infancy, supplementation is not always necessary. Fluoride can already be found in many products, as it has been added to the public water supply and to many varieties of toothpaste and mouthwash. However, if additional fluoride supplementation is necessary, it can be found in lozenge, pill, drop, and tablet form.
One of the best possible ways for fluoride treatments comes in the form of professional treatments administered directly at your dentist office. When you visit us, we can make sure to schedule you for fluoride treatments if you desire. In addition, most bi-annual professional cleanings often come with fluoride treatments as well.
