If you want a strong and healthy smile that is free from dental issues, then it’s important to strengthen and nourish your teeth with fluoride.

Fluoride is a natural mineral that is extremely beneficial for your teeth. In fact, it’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride each day. You can find fluoride in things like water and food. Fluoride strengthens and nourishes your teeth, giving them the ability to combat plaque growth and the effects of acid, which can help you avoid many dental issues. It is very important to consume the right amount of fluoride each day because your teeth tend to demineralize frequently. If you don’t get proper fluoride exposure, your teeth won’t be strong enough and your smile will be weak and vulnerable to issues like tooth decay, sensitivity, and gum disease.

Luckily, Dr. Susan A. Vanstone and our dental team offer a professional fluoride treatment at our office. This is a foam, gel, or varnish treatment. The fluoride is typically flavored so the treatment is more enjoyable. After your teeth have been properly cleaned, your hygienist will place the fluoride on your teeth, whether it’s with a tray or brush, and will wait for the fluoride minerals to soak into your chompers. After a certain amount of time, you will rinse your mouth and be on your way.
