Protecting Your Teeth
Regular fluoride use should be a routine part of caring for your teeth and oral hygiene. You should add good brushing and flossing habits to the general dentistry treatments and checkups at Parkcrest Dental Group. You should also use some form of fluoride treatment to help ensure that teeth are at their strongest.
What is fluoride?
Fluoride naturally occurs in many water sources around the world. It is a mineral that can repair the beginning stages of decay and prevent cavities from forming. Fluoride makes teeth stronger and more resistant to acids that weaken tooth enamel.
Why is Fluoride a Part of General Dentistry?
Contrary to what a small vocal sect of the population believe, fluoride strengthens your teeth and protects you. We consider fluoride an important part of general dentistry because it works as a preventative measure. General dentistry doesn’t begin and end at the Parkcrest Dental Group office. General dentistry starts with you, and there are some things you can do with fluoride to protect your teeth before you enter our office and after you leave.
