Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. It is also an important component in the development of strong enamel and preventing the formation of cavities. Professional fluoride treatments, completed by your dentist or hygienist, contain a stronger concentration of fluoride than what is available in over-the-counter toothpaste and mouthwash. Your dentist will discuss with you the right type of fluoride treatment to best strengthen and protect your teeth from cavities. To learn more about the benefits of fluoride treatments, please do not hesitate to call our office.
