fluoride treatments

general dentistry

Preventative care is an umbrella terms for many kinds of dental treatments, and we believe one of the most underrated is fluoride treatments. They’re no substitute for a good dental cleaning, but when done together with proper brushing and flossing, you can protect your teeth while strengthening them against tooth decay!

What is Fluoride and How Does it Work?

Fluoride is a mineral naturally found in water, teas, and even certain foods, like spinach and baked potatoes. This particular mineral helps form the outer layer of tooth enamel that protects your teeth from potential damage caused by daily habits.

Unfortunately, the bacteria that forms in your mouth (like dental plaque) eats away at this layer, weakening the tooth and leaving it vulnerable. If it goes unchecked, decay can eventually expose and infect the inner tissues and nerves of your teeth. This results in a slew of other issues.

Fluoride treatment is a concentrated varnish that returns those important nutrients to your enamel, strengthening your teeth against cavities, tooth infection, and tooth loss!

Benefits of Fluoride Treatments

  • Easy & non-invasive
