Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that occurs in foods such as fruits, vegetables, and milk. Fluoride aids in dental health by strengthening tooth enamel against acids found within your diet or drinks like coffee. Fluoride treatments are a great way to stop the effects of aging and tooth decay, as well as other oral health problems such as gingivitis by fighting bacteria that lead to plaque accumulation on your teeth.
Fluoride treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and leaves no damage or pain. You can receive these treatments from your dentist during a routine visit. It is important to follow all oral care instructions from your dentist after fluoride treatments.
