Do you want a strong and healthy smile free of dental issues? Then you’ll definitely want to nourish your teeth with fluoride.

Fluoride is a normal mineral that is tremendously useful for your teeth. In fact, daily fluoride exposure is not only healthy; it’s important. Fluoride gives your teeth the ability to combat plaque growth and the effects of acid and can help you avoid many dental issues. Getting the right amount of fluoride each day is key because your teeth tend to demineralize frequently. If you don’t get proper fluoride exposure, your smile will be weak and vulnerable to issues like tooth decay, sensitivity, and gum disease.

Some cities in the U.S. even add fluoride to their water supply. Some foods also contain fluoride. For example, pickles, grape juice, spinach, potatoes and some canned vegetables contain fluoride. Finally, many toothpastes and mouthwashes contain fluoride.

To boost your dental defenses, Dr. James R. Healy and our team offer a professional fluoride treatment at our office. After your teeth have been suitably 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 teeth. After a set time, you will rinse your mouth and be on your way.
