Sometimes the dental world can be a bit confusing and complex, especially if you don’t know much about the treatments, techniques, and language provided and used. This can lead to many questions. Today, our dentist, Dr. Spear, would like to clear any of that confusion by talking to you more about fluoride. So, if you have questions about fluoride in Fort Worth, Texas, he would be happy to help you by providing the answers to commonly asked questions.
What is fluoride?
Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens and nourishes your teeth. It gives the enamel the ability to fight decay and reject the harmful substances that threaten it throughout the day. It’s important to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly. In fact, it’s recommended to do so at least twice a day.
What can fluoride do for me?
Fluoride can help you prevent dental issues, especially tooth decay and enamel erosion. This is because, like mentioned before, the fluoride can strengthen your tooth enamel and make it a tough shield that doesn’t allow dental issues in.
What are some ways I can get fluoride?
The best ways to receive fluoride exposure are by brushing with fluoride toothpaste, rinsing with fluoride mouthwash, drinking fluoridated water, and receiving a professional fluoride treatment.
