During the day, your teeth exposed to acids that can break down enamel and lead to tooth decay.
Fluoride help inhabit these acids from attacking the tooth surface. It also helps restore the minerals that have been worn down and repair weak spots in enamel. Fluoride is also beneficial for children because it becomes integrated with growing the teeth and helps develop resistance to acids later in life.
You can find fluoride in water, tooth paste, etc…. However your dentist will typically treat your teeth with high concentrated fluoride to protect your teeth until your next scheduled visit.
Fluoride is specially necessary for individuals with the following conditions:
1) Dry Mouth Condition
2) Frequent Dental Cavities
3) Gum Disease
4) Dental Braces, Dental Crowns, and Dental Bridges
5) Recent Teeth Whitening sensitivity
Most insurance plans offer fluoride treatment for only children but we do offer it for only $10 after your dental cleaning appointment.
