Fluoride Treatment in Cheltenham

patient talking with dentistFluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in water and soil. It has been shown to help prevent tooth decay by strengthening the enamel on our teeth, making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria that can cause cavities.

Fluoride can also reverse the early stages of decay by remineralizing the tooth structure.

When applied topically, fluoride can control the decay or progression of decay, or even prevent decay from occurring in the first place. Dentists typically apply fluoride during routine checkups and cleanings, as well as encourage patients to use fluoridated toothpaste at home as a preventative tool to keep their teeth healthy.

The Importance of Fluoride in Dental Checkups

At our dental practice, we include fluoride treatment as part of every checkup and cleaning procedure. This is because we believe that preventing tooth decay is much easier and less costly than treating it once it has already developed.

By applying fluoride to your teeth, we can help you maintain good oral health and reduce your risk of developing cavities. It’s safe and effective for people of all ages, making it an essential component of dental care for both children and adults.
