Fluoride is a beneficial and essential mineral that strengthens and nourishes the teeth. This gives the teeth the ability to fight tooth decay and enamel erosion. It’s important to expose your teeth to fluoride each day. To help strengthen and nourish your teeth, Dr. Parker Long and our dental team proudly offer a fluoride treatment at our office. This treatment typically comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish, and it is slightly flavored to make it more enjoyable. After your treatment, your teeth will have the mineral exposure it needs for now. To schedule a fluoride treatment in College Station, Texas, call our office now, and talk to a member of our dental team.
Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and many foods. While you receive a certain amount of fluoride from your diet and from using 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. This makes fluoride very important for children as their teeth grow.
Our dentist and team members may recommend professional fluoride treatment during your regular dental checkup. We may suggest further fluoride treatment if your teeth are prone to decay or not receiving sufficient 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.
