Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is an important mineral that is found in your teeth and bones. It can work to prevent cavities and remineralize your tooth enamel. We highly recommend getting fluoride treatments at River Oak Dental as well as switching to a high fluoride toothpaste.

What are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride is a mineral that is found in both your teeth and your bones. Using fluoride can help remineralize your tooth enamel (the outer, protective layer of your teeth). This works to help prevent cavities and can even reverse the signs of tooth decay. Dentists often use a fluoride treatment to help strengthen the enamel on your teeth. If you eat a lot of acidic foods and beverages such as citrus fruits, wine, coffee, soda, or tomatoes, the enamel on your teeth is likely to break down faster. These items can compromise the enamel and therefore, make you more susceptible to cavities.

Do I Need Professional Fluoride Treatments?

While fluoride is often found in tap water and in over the counter rinses, they are preventative measures in small doses. At River Oak Dental, we offer professional high fluorite treatments. During this process, a fluoride varnish is applied over your teeth. This will help to inhibit the demineralization of your tooth enamel which is a critical factor in keeping your teeth healthy. We provide fluoride varnish for adults and children as well. These fluoride applications have been shown to significantly reduce the incidences of cavities.

River Oak Dental Also Offers High Fluoride Toothpaste

If you’re looking for additional protection, River Oak Dental can also offer a prescription for high fluoride toothpaste. This high fluoride toothpaste will offer much more protection than what you could find over the counter at local stores.
