Fluoride helps to support healthy tooth enamel, it fights the bacteria that harms your teeth and gums and is known to be the most effective agent in preventing tooth decay.
It is especially useful if you are high risk for cavities or have sensitive teeth as it strengthens the tooth enamel by the process of remineralization. Fluoride treatments can be beneficial to those of all ages and the benefits of fluoride have been well known for over 50 years. Although people receive fluoride from food, water and toothpastes…it still may not be enough to prevent decay. The use of home or professional in office fluoride treatments may be recommended for reasons including: deep pits and fissures, exposed root surfaces from recession, issues with sensitivity, poor oral hygiene habits, high carbohydrate/sugars intake, inadequate saliva flow (dry mouth) due to medications or radiation treatment, a history of tooth decay or inadequate fluoride intake (well water).
