Fluoride

Patients who are at a high risk of tooth decay may benefit from fluoride treatments. Dr. Kotecha and her associates, of Dentistry On 10, offer fluoride treatments for patients when appropriate. The benefit of fluoride is that it can assist in preventing cavity development and the build-up of plaque and tartar. The fluoride is applied to the teeth quickly and easily. It is typically used on children under the age of six, or on adults who have high acid levels in their mouth making them more susceptible to tooth decay.

Fluoride is a mineral, and works by making the teeth less prone to acids that occur in the mouth, foods, and in bacteria. It can be found in everything from drinking water to toothpastes, and is a great way to fight tooth decay and strengthen teeth. Fluoride can assist a patient in maintaining a healthy smile. Fluoride is especially helpful for patients who suffer from dry mouth, have periodontal disease, have restorations such as crowns and bridges, or those with frequent cavities. Patients such as these may benefit from regular fluoride applications, which may be done every three months to once a year. The dentist will provide more information about how often fluoride treatments should be done, depending on the patient’s unique dental needs.

Dr. Kotecha and her associates provide fluoride treatments for patients who may benefit from them. This may be a patient who has had recurring cavities or a young patient that can benefit from it to strengthen his or her new teeth. A simple examination and consultation appointment at Dentistry On 10 can assist patients in determining whether they can benefit from fluoride applications. Patients can also use special toothpastes and at-home fluoride treatments when necessary to boost their oral health between visits to the dentist.

If you believe fluoride treatments may assist in strengthening your smile, Call Dentistry On 10 to learn more about this mineral that has been improving the health and well-being of patient smiles for years!
