You rarely hear the word “toothpaste” without it being preceded by “fluoride.” David C. Montz DDS in Pearland reminds you that fluoride is good for dental health at all ages.
Fluoride is a critical mineral that helps your teeth stay strong. It is found in some foods and water, and makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities. It makes teeth stronger and more resistant to the detrimental acid that is formed by bacteria. We may recommend a fluoride treatment during your regularly schedule dental cleaning.
The fluoride used in in-office treatments comes in either a gel or foam, and may be available in several flavors. It is applied directly to teeth through the use of a plastic dental tray. The tray is kept in your mouth for just a few minutes. Fluoride treatments are an easy and painless way to strengthen your teeth and keep an attractive smile.
While many of our patients understand the importance of fluoride treatments for children, some do not realize its importance for adults. Yet fluoride treatments are sometimes recommended for adults who are susceptible to enamel wear or cavities.
We urge you to see us at David C. Montz DDS in Pearland every six months for a complete dental checkup and cleaning. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and dental implants. Call for an appointment today.
