Fluoride Treatment Helps Strengthen Your Teeth Against Cavities

Dr. Derek Evans offers fluoride treatment to help prevent tooth decay! This simple preventive treatment works to strengthen your tooth enamel and make it more resistant to cavity-causing bacteria.

Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and many foods. While you receive a certain amount from your diet and from using toothpaste with, we may recommend treatment to further strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities.

Fluoride helps to strengthen your teeth and protect them from tooth decay. As you eat and drink throughout the day, bacteria, sugars and acids constantly attack and demineralize the enamel of your teeth. This treatment works to remineralize tooth enamel, preventing tooth decay and cavities. In addition, it can strengthen teeth as they develop to make sure they are strong and healthy. This makes treatment very important for children as their teeth grow in.

Our dentists and team members may recommend professional fluoride treatment during your regular dental checkup. We may suggest further treatment if your teeth are prone to decay or if you are not receiving a sufficient amount from other sources. Professional fluoride is available in the form of a gel, varnish or foam. Treatment is just one of the ways our team helps you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
