Fluoride Can Strengthen Your Teeth and Keep Dental Issues at Bay

Posted .

You deserve a strong and healthy mouth so you can eat, talk, and smile confidently. Therefore, our Kirti Tewari Dental PC dental team encourages you to take good care of your teeth on a regular basis by keeping up on oral hygiene, visiting your dentist every six months, and exposing your teeth to fluoride.

Fluoride is a beneficial and natural mineral that can be found in food and water. It, fortunately, nourishes and strengthens our teeth so they can fight the bacteria living in your mouth. Each day, your teeth go through two processes: a demineralization process and a remineralization process. If your teeth aren’t properly exposed to fluoride every day, only the demineralization process will occur, which will make your teeth weak and vulnerable to dental issues like tooth decay, tooth sensitivity, and gum disease. You can prevent this by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day, swishing with fluoride mouthwash once a day, and receiving a professional fluoride treatment every six months at Kirti Tewari Dental PC.

Luckily, Dr. Kirti Tewari 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.
