Fluoride is a mineral that can be found in natural food or water. There are different types of fluoride treatments available, such as foams, gels, or varnishes. These products are only left on your teeth for a few minutes during your cleaning and can repair weaknesses in the enamel by placing the proper nutrients inside. Once your teeth have been through a fluoride treatment, they begin to better resist acid and bacteria, which makes it less likely that your teeth will have cavities in the future.
You can keep up a simpler fluoride treatment after your visit to our office by using toothpaste with fluoride in it or using fluoride gels at home. This will keep your teeth healthy and strong and will impress your dentists when you come back in. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at Gateway Oaks Dental. We are always happy to help.
