Strengthen Your Tooth Enamel with Fluoride Treatment Today
Make it Mission: Impossible for bacteria to cause cavities by remineralizing the enamel of your teeth with a topical application of fluoride from Cornerstone Dental Centre. We offer fluoride treatment to Fort Saskatchewan, AB patients of all ages. Your teeth will be effectively coated and insulated with fluoride treatment if they are sensitive to gum recession or natural wear. It will not only prevent re-infection after a gum treatment, but it also restrains the bleeding of tender gums, which is caused by plaque bacteria. For more information about the benefits of fluoride treatment for tooth enamel repair, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with our friendly dental team!
What Is Fluoride? Isn’t It Found in My Home’s Tap Water?
Fluoride is a natural mineral found in water and many foods we eat, including spinach, kale, skim milk, fish, and apples. Because the fluoride found in your home’s tap water isn’t usually sufficient to protect your teeth, Cornerstone Dental Centre recommends you get a fluoride treatment at our Fort Saskatchewan office during your preventative care appointments. The small amounts of fluoride found in tap water are often missed by many of our patients, especially as the consumption of bottled water has increased over the years. The benefits of fluoride treatment should be discussed with a member of our team when scheduling your next dental cleaning and exam.
We may also recommend dental sealants to aid in your tooth enamel repair. To keep your teeth free from acids that attack your tooth enamel, you need to observe regular brushing and flossing. However, teeth can have deep, hard-to-reach fissures and pits, causing plaque to hide there, which will eventually cause cavities. By applying a dental sealant to your teeth, we can assist you with cavity prevention. Both dental sealants and fluoride treatments are simple and effective treatments for patients of all ages.
Why Is Fluoride Treatment Important for Patients with Braces?
“What is tooth enamel?” you may be wondering. Tooth enamel is the hard, protective layer found on the surface of your teeth. Over time, bacteria and plaque attack your teeth, wearing down your tooth enamel and causing tooth decay, cavities, and even gum disease. Fluoride treatment is another form of defense against these repeated attacks. In controlling gingivitis and decalcifications, fluoride can be an invaluable asset to you if you are wearing braces. It also controls bad breath, irritation from dentures, and blocks plaque formation while also preventing recurring decay around dental crowns and bridges.
How Does Fluoride Treatment Work? What to Expect During Treatment?
Fluoride gel, varnish, or foam is topically applied to the teeth to help repair tooth enamel and ward off decay and cavities. Application is quick and painless, using either a brush or specialized foaming trays. Your teeth may feel sticky until the fluoride enters the tooth enamel and hardens. You may be asked to avoid drinking or eating certain foods until you can brush the gel or varnish off later that evening or the following day. Most patients request a fluoride treatment during every dental checkup, but you may speak to your dentist about customizing your treatment schedule to meet your specific dental needs. Fluoride treatments are recommended for small children who may be more prone to cavities. When used in conjunction with healthy oral hygiene habits, fluoride treatment effectively prevents plaque and bacteria buildup in both adults and children.
