Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens teeth to resist the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Fluoride that has been added to your drinking water “bathes” your teeth to help them stay strong and resistant to bacteria.
Not everyone has access to fluoridated water, or fluoride toothpaste might not give enough protection. In those cases, we can apply fluoride treatments as needed for both children and adults. But we need your help! Fluoride treatments alone won’t protect your teeth from bacteria or tooth decay. Brushing and flossing twice a day is still the best defense against bacteria, decay and tooth abscess.
