How does fluoride help teeth?

Fluoride helps teeth by making the enamel, the outer layer of the teeth, stronger and more resistant to decay. When your teeth come in contact with fluoride through water, toothpaste, or treatments, it gets absorbed into the enamel and helps repair early stages of tooth decay. Fluoride also disrupts the growth of harmful bacteria in your mouth, reducing the production of acids that can cause cavities. Regular use of fluoride can significantly lower your risk of developing tooth decay and keep your teeth healthier over time.

What is dental fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral that is used to help prevent tooth decay and strengthen tooth enamel. It can be found in toothpaste, mouth rinses, and professional fluoride treatments offered in dental offices. It’s also a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in rocks, soil, and water. Fluoride works by absorbing into the enamel and making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria in the mouth. Our office uses concentrated amounts of fluoride during fluoride treatments as an additional preventive service to improve the oral health of our patients.

Who should get fluoride treatments?

Fluoride treatments are beneficial for people of all ages but are especially important for children and teenagers whose teeth are still developing. Adults who are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay, such as those with dry mouth conditions, gum disease, or a history of cavities, can also benefit from these treatments. Regular fluoride treatments can help maintain strong enamel and prevent cavities, making them a good preventive measure for anyone looking to keep their teeth healthy.
