To help keep cavities at bay and prevent decay, some patients opt for a fluoride treatment for their smile. We recommend them for children (with guardian approval) and adults as needed. One of the most common ways most people come in contact with fluoride is through their public water supply or some dental hygiene products. Not everyone has access to fluoridated water or they choose to drink filtered or spring water, so it’s important to supplement your oral health care with a fluoride treatment. This can help to:
- Minimize the negative effects of sugary drinks and foods
- Compliment regular flossing and brushing
- Improve dry mouth caused by a medical problem or medications
Ask us about fluoride treatment for you and your family during your next visit to our dental office in Crownsville. Together, we can strengthen your smile and reverse decay.
