benefits of fluoride treatments

Strengthens teeth

Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid erosion and decay. Fluoride treatments are especially beneficial if you have dry mouth, a weakened immune system, or another condition that increases your risk for tooth decay.

Prevent tooth decay

Fluoride treatments are one of the most beneficial preventive dentistry treatments available. Fluoride is a mineral that can prevent tooth decay and cavities. It can also reverse early tooth decay in some cases. The fluoride treatments that you receive in our office are customized to your unique needs.

Protects against enamel erosion

Fluoride treatments help protect tooth enamel from erosion. A protective layer is formed over the enamel. This layer helps prevent the erosion from acids in food and drink.

Remineralizes teeth

Fluoride treatments help to remineralize teeth. Remineralization, also called rehardening, helps to strengthen the enamel of the teeth. When the enamel is weakened, it is easier for plaque and tartar to build up and cause problems.

Once fluoride treatments are applied, the fluoride can replace the lost minerals in the enamel, helping to strengthen it.

Prevents sensitivity

Fluoride treatments are a simple way to protect your enamel from sensitivity. Sensitivity occurs when the enamel, which protects tooth roots, wears away. As the enamel thins, the inner layer of the tooth, called the dentin, becomes exposed. The dentin contains small tubes that lead to the tooth’s nerve center. When the dentin is exposed, these tubes allow stimuli to travel directly to the nerve center, causing pain. Fluoride treatments for sensitivity can help rebuild the enamel, protecting your teeth from stimuli and discomfort.

Reduces plaque buildup

Fluoride treatments help reduce the buildup of plaque on your teeth, which makes it harder for bacteria to stick to the surface of teeth. Plaque buildup can lead to cavities and gum disease, so reducing plaque buildup is essential.

Fluoride is a natural mineral that is found in water and certain foods. It helps strengthen tooth enamel, protect teeth from decay, and reduce tooth sensitivity.

Strengthens enamel

Fluoride treatments strengthen and replenish enamel. Enamel is the outermost layer of the teeth, and the hardest substance in the human body.

Less invasive than other dental treatments

Many patients avoid dental visits because of the potential pain associated with dental procedures. This leads many patients to put off routine preventive care, which is necessary for maintaining a healthy smile. With fluoride treatments, patients can protect their teeth from tooth decay without any discomfort.

Fluoride treatments may be recommended for children, teens, and adults who are prone to cavities. Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay and cavities. The fluoride rinses or gels coat the teeth, making your teeth stronger, and less susceptible to decay.
