The trick to preventing most dental issues is to keep your teeth and gums healthy enough to fight off the oral bacteria that cause them. For instance, healthy teeth are coated in enamel – the most resilient substance that your body produces – and when enamel grows weak, your teeth become susceptible to cavities and damage. Enamel grows weak when inadequate hygiene allows plaque and tartar to gather in force, allowing oral bacteria to attack the enamel with erosive acid. Fluoride treatment can strengthen enamel when it’s grown weak so you can reduce your risks of tooth decay and cavity development.
Should You Consider Fluoride Treatment?
During your dental exam and cleaning appointment, your dentist can check the state of your tooth enamel (as well as the rest of your oral health) to determine if you might benefit from fluoride treatment. The mineral can strengthen weakened enamel by bonding to the minerals it’s made of. It can be applied as a topical treatment during your visit, and your dentist might suggest investing in toothpaste and mouthwash that also contain fluoride.
Because children often need a boost to protect their still-developing smiles, fluoride treatment is a frequent part of routine children’s dental care, as well.
