Fluoride: Strengthening Your Teeth and Preventing Cavities

At iSmile Dentistry, we understand the importance of maintaining strong, healthy teeth. That’s why we offer professional fluoride treatment as part of our comprehensive dental care services. Fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral found in water and many foods, plays a crucial role in protecting your teeth against decay. Our experienced dental professionals may recommend fluoride treatment if you are at a higher risk of developing cavities. Read on to learn more about the benefits of fluoride and how it can help safeguard your smile.

Understanding Fluoride

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in water sources and various foods. While you already receive a certain amount of fluoride through your diet and use of fluoride toothpaste, our dental experts may recommend additional fluoride treatment to provide your teeth with enhanced strength and protection against cavities.

The Role of Fluoride in Dental Health

Throughout the day, as you eat and drink, harmful bacteria, sugars, and acids attack and weaken the enamel of your teeth. This constant assault can lead to tooth decay and cavities. Fluoride comes to the rescue by remineralizing the enamel, effectively reversing the demineralization process. By replenishing essential minerals, fluoride strengthens your teeth and acts as a powerful defense against tooth decay and cavities. It’s particularly vital for children as their teeth develop, ensuring their growing smiles remain robust and healthy.

Professional Fluoride Treatment at iSmile Dentistry

During your regular dental checkup, our iSmile dentists and dedicated team members may recommend professional fluoride treatment. This additional measure is especially beneficial if your teeth are prone to decay or if you’re not receiving sufficient fluoride from other sources. Our professional fluoride treatment is available in the form of a gel, varnish, or foam, providing flexible options tailored to your specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Professional fluoride treatments are highly concentrated compared to any traditional dental care items you can buy from the store. In-office treatments can be in the form of a liquid solution, gel, foam, or vanish. Not only are they more concentrated, but they are professionally administered for optimal use.

Your dental care team will advise of how long you should avoid eating, as well as any hot or cold beverages. In addition, certain foods such as hard, sticky, or chewy food may chip a sealant, and in general, do not promote good dental health and should be avoided. Your teeth and gums may be extra sensitive after treatment.

Fluoride helps teeth build resiliency, making them stronger to prevent acid attacks, sugar, plaque growth, and bacteria to overall prevent tooth decay.
