Fluoride Treatments - Deerfield Beach
Fluoride Treatments Near Me
During routine cleanings and exams, our dental team may recommend an in office fluoride treatment or fluoride may be prescribed for home use in the form of a rinse or toothpaste.
Tooth decay is an infectious and transmissible bacterial disease. When a person eats sugar, or other refined carbohydrates, some oral bacteria produce acid that removes minerals from the surface of the tooth, a process that is known as demineralization. If the demineralization process continues for a period of time, a cavity is formed. Fluoride works to reverse the demineralization process, thereby preventing the cavity from forming. In addition, fluoride reduces the ability of the oral bacteria to produce acid.
It has been demonstrated that fluoride’s action in preventing tooth decay provides a benefit to both children and adults throughout their lives. The health benefits of fluoride include a reduction in the frequency and severity of tooth decay, a decrease in the need for fillings and tooth extractions, a reduction in pain and suffering associated with tooth decay, and the obvious elevation of self-esteem that goes with improved oral functioning and appearance.
