Can I benefit from Fluoride Treatment at the dentist?

Dentist in Rowlett And Mesquite,TX

Why do I need Fluoride?

Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps in building healthy teeth and thwarts the possibility of cavities. It has been an important oral health treatment for ages. Fluoride supports healthy tooth enamel and protects them from the bacteria that harm teeth and gums. Tooth enamel is the outer protective covering of each tooth that could wither or decay if not taken care of. Some levels of fluoride are available in our regular drinking water at most place, but topical fluoride which the dentists at Bayside Dental can offer in their highly equipped dental office helps your teeth in a much better way.

Fluoride is particularly helpful if you are extremely prone to developing dental caries, or even cavities. Cavities usually grow when bacteria build up on teeth and gums due to which they form a sticky layer of plaque around it. Plaque produces an acid that results in erosion of teeth and gum tissue. If the plaque breaks down the enamel layer, bacteria can infect and harm the nerves and blood at the core of the tooth. Other situations that demand fluoride treatment are braces or other on-going orthodontic treatments, receding gums causing exposed root surfaces, xerostomia (dry mouth), on-going chemotherapy or radio-therapy or general lack or oral hygiene.

What does Fluoride treatment entail?

Bayside Dental offers the finest professional fluoride treatments. The treatment is in the form of a highly concentrated rinse, foam, gel, or varnish that could be applied with a swab, brush, tray, or mouthwash. These treatments include an amount of fluoride that is much higher than what is in your water or toothpaste and take merely a few minutes to apply. You may be asked to not engage in eating or drinking for half an hour after the treatment is completed so that the fluoride can be fully absorbed. It would be advisable for you to give the talented dentists at Bayside Dental your full health history so that they can choose the right form of treatments for you keeping your best interest in mind.
