A Fluoride Treatment During Your Dental Exam Helps Maintain Healthy Teeth

Posted .

Strong, healthy teeth are important for maintaining good oral health, and the health of your teeth is directly influenced by the strength of your tooth enamel. Oral hygiene inconsistencies and the regular consumption of acidic foods and beverages can deplete the mineral density of your tooth enamel.

If Dr. Maria Sese detects signs of weakened tooth enamel during your twice-annual dental exam, she will present you with treatment options.

One of the most effective methods for restoring the mineral strength of your teeth is to have a fluoride treatment administered at the conclusion of your dental exam.

Fluoride will be poured into a special tray that is inserted into your mouth and held there for a few minutes. The fluoride is in much greater concentration than you will find in retail-grade oral hygiene products. After the treatment, you will need to avoid eating and drinking for up to an hour to maximize the fluoride saturation in your tooth enamel.
