Fluoride Treatments For A Stronger & Healthier Smile
At Battle Creek Family Dentistry in Springfield, our team is proud to offer fluoride treatments to help protect our patients’ smiles. Found in many foods and also in community water supplies, fluoride helps prevent decay (and even reverses its earliest effects!) by strengthening tooth enamel.
What is fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in most community water supplies, as well as in many food sources, including tea and certain fish species. Its main benefit is that it hardens your teeth’s enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria that can lead to cavities.
What’s involved with fluoride treatment application?
Our dentist uses a foam, gel, or varnish containing highly concentrated fluoride and applies it to your teeth. The fluoride is then absorbed into the enamel, where it strengthens and protects the teeth from decay-causing bacteria.
Who should consider fluoride treatments?
While fluoride treatments are particularly beneficial to children and adults with a higher risk of cavities, they’re recommended as a preventive treatment for patients of all ages and dental needs.
