Remineralize the enamel of your teeth and make it harder for bacteria to cause cavities with a topical application of fluoride from Saddleback Dental Centre in Edmonton. If you have sensitive teeth due to gum recession or natural wear, fluoride treatment will effectively coat and insulate them. Fluoride will also inhibit bleeding of tender gums caused by plaque bacteria and prevent re-infection after a gum treatment.
Fluoride Important for Patients with Braces
If you wear braces, fluoride can be an invaluable asset when controlling gingivitis and decalcifications. It will also prevent recurring decay around crowns and bridges and block plaque formation around implants while helping control bad breath and irritation from dentures.
A Note on Fluoride in Tap Water
The fluoride found in tap water is not sufficient to protect your teeth and that is why Saddleback Dental Centre recommends getting fluoride treatment during your hygiene appointments. With the increasing consumption of bottled water, we miss even the small amounts found in tap water.
