Do you want a strong smile that combats tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion? If so, then you need to make sure your chompers are properly exposed to fluoride on a regular basis.

Fluoride is a natural mineral that can be found in things like food and water. However, there are times when you might not get enough fluoride exposure each day to keep your teeth in tip-top shape, which is why it’s important to take advantage of fluoride treatments regularly. Some ways to boost your fluoride exposure is by brushing with fluoride toothpaste, rinsing your mouth with fluoride mouthwash, and receiving a professional fluoride treatment.

The fluoride treatment at our office is easy and simple. It will come in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it will most likely be flavored to make it more enjoyable. Your hygienist will either paint the fluoride onto your teeth or will place the fluoride into a tray and will put the tray into your mouth. You will then wait for time to pass, allowing the fluoride minerals to seep into the enamel of your teeth. When the time is up, you will rinse your mouth free from the fluoride.

If you strengthen and nourish your teeth with fluoride on a regular basis, then you’ll be on the right track toward the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve.
