Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens teeth and reduces decay when applied regularly. It acts as a covering to the teeth to protect against acid saliva and sugar. Fluoride also helps replenish calcium and phosphate ions that make your teeth harder through remineralization.
If you don’t have enough fluoride in your teeth you are at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease. It is important to use enough fluoride to protect your teeth but not overwhelm them with too much. We can help determine if you are getting enough fluoride- give us a call today!
How Much Fluoride Do My Teeth Need?
Typically patients get enough fluoride to keep their teeth healthy from their drinking water and toothpaste. But in some cases this is not enough. Our team of professionals will help you find other safe ways to add fluoride to protect your smile. Every patient is different which is why we have different fluoride treatments like mouthwashes, special toothpastes, in office treatments, and occasionally prescription fluoride gels.
Ways to Get Enough
- Mouth washes
- Fluoride treatments at the dentist
- Prescription fluoride supplements
