FLUORIDE TREATMENTS

FLUORIDE TREATMENTS

Strong Teeth are Healthy Teeth!

Tooth enamel is dissolved and replaced constantly in the mouth. Fluoride can make that replacement material much stronger. Research indicates that fluoride can help prevent cavities in children and adults in at least two ways:

  • By making the tooth enamel stronger against acids in the mouth formed by bacteria and sugar

  • Helping to reduce the number of bacteria on the tooth surface

Water fluoridation is a common practice in U.S. public water systems. However, bottled water, home treatment systems and private well water may not be fluoridated. The lack of fluoride for infants and children during the crucial formative years may contribute to tooth decay later on.

Topical applications such as toothpastes and mouth rinses can supply that fluoride. If you’re concerned about getting enough fluoride to protect your teeth, Munster Dental Care offers fluoride treatments in the office to make sure all smiles receive the benefits of tooth-strengthening fluoride.
