Fluoride is a mineral naturally found in water and many foods. While you receive a certain amount of fluoride from your diet and use toothpaste with fluoride, we may recommend fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth further and prevent cavities.
Fluoride helps to strengthen your teeth and protect them from tooth decay. As you eat and drink throughout the day, bacteria, sugars, and acids constantly attack and demineralize the enamel of your teeth. Fluoride works to remineralize tooth enamel, preventing tooth decay and cavities. In addition, fluoride can strengthen teeth as they develop to make sure they are strong and healthy, making fluoride essential for children as their teeth grow.
iSmile dentists and team members may recommend professional fluoride treatment during your regular dental checkup. In addition, we may suggest more treatments if your teeth are prone to decay or if you are not receiving a sufficient amount of fluoride from other sources. Professional fluoride is available in the form of a gel, varnish, or foam. Fluoride treatment is just one of the ways our team helps you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
