Fluoride Treatments: Not Just For Kids

fluoride treatment Owensboro

You rarely hear the word “toothpaste” without it being preceded by “fluoride.” Most toothpastes contain fluoride, for good reason. In this post from Thompson and Frey Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we explain why.

Fluoride is an essential mineral that helps your teeth stay strong. It is found in some foods and water and makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities. Fluoride helps teeth by making them stronger and more resistant to the harmful acid that is formed by bacteria. We may recommend a fluoride treatment in addition to your dental cleaning.

The fluoride used in in-office treatments comes in either a gel or foam, and may be available in several flavors. It is applied directly to teeth through the use of a plastic dental tray. The tray is kept in your mouth for just a few minutes. Fluoride treatments are a quick and painless way to strengthen your teeth and preserve an attractive smile.

People tend to associate fluoride with children and growing teeth, but it’s good for adult teeth, too. Fluoride treatments are sometimes recommended to adults who are susceptible to enamel wear or cavities.
