Make your teeth more resistant to cavities: Get reliable fluoride treatment at Union Ave Dental.
According to health reports, approximately 91 percent of Americans between the ages of 16 to 70 suffer from tooth decay every year. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is known as nature’s ‘cavity-fighter’ and is found in many foods and water. It helps make your teeth stronger and more resistant to cavities. Ask our friendly team for more information about fluoride treatment, benefits, and costs.
Fluoride treatments can help patients of all ages, including adults and children. Tooth enamel (the hard, protective layer on our teeth) is lost daily due to acid attacks. These acids are produced by bacteria when they act on sugary substances in food. However, fluoride is also gained through the consumption of food, water, and beverages.
When we brush our teeth with fluoride toothpaste, for example, the fluoride forms a protective layer that creates an effective barrier to acid-producing bacteria. In addition, fluoride from foods and beverages, as well as from supplements, helps fluoride become part of saliva. This saliva coats our teeth all day long and makes it stronger and more resistant.
The problem occurs when we lose too much fluoride without gaining adequately in return. This imbalance leads to early tooth decay. Getting effective fluoride treatments at Union Ave Dental helps reverse the signs of early tooth decay.
While fluoride is found in most water bodies, including lakes, rivers, and even the ocean, fluoride is added to drinking water supplies to help minimize tooth decay in Americans. Today, almost 75 percent of America’s public water supply is fluoridated to improve dental health.
In addition to drinking fluoridated water and using fluoride-rich dental products, you can also benefit from getting fluoride treatments at the dentist. Our fluoride treatments are reliable, effective, and safe.
