Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in most foods and water. It’s essential for oral health treatments, as it can build strong teeth and prevent cavities. Fluoride is also known to speed up remineralization and disrupt acid production in permanent teeth.
Fluoride treatments at the dentist’s office are quite straightforward. They’re available in the form of a highly concentrated rinse, foam, gel, or varnish – much more than what’s in your toothpaste, food, or water. We can apply the fluoride with a swab, brush, mouthwash, or tray. It takes a few minutes to apply and needs about 30 minutes to fully absorb. Until then, you should avoid eating or drinking during that time.
Patients can take advantage of many benefits that come from having a professional fluoride treatment. Below are some of the positive effects it can have on your teeth and oral health.
We love helping patients like you achieve excellent oral health, which is why we offer fluoride treatments at our practice. If you’re interested in learning more about this service, call Best Dentistry Miami today to schedule an appointment. We can’t wait to hear from you!
