If you have sensitive teeth and would like to strengthen and protect them, our dentist may recommend fluoride treatments. These treatments help you maintain your oral health and smile. For more information about fluoride treatments in Chicago, Illinois, or to schedule a visit with Dr. Mollie K. Rojas, call Shoreline Dental Chicago today at (312) 266-9487.
Fluoride is a common mineral found in water and food. You receive some amount of fluoride just from your toothpaste and what you eat, but a professional fluoride treatment can give your teeth some extra strength and defense against cavities.
Throughout the day, the bacteria, sugars and acids in what you eat and drink settle on your teeth and demineralize their enamel. Fluoride remineralizes the enamel, reducing your risk of decay and cavities. Fluoride also strengthens developing teeth, making it an important treatment for children so that their smiles can start out healthy leading into their adult years.
Fluoride treatment is often applied at the end of your routine dental cleaning and examination. If we detect that you may not be receiving enough fluoride from your diet or toothpaste, we may recommend further or more frequent fluoride treatment.
Fluoride treatment should be part of the foundation you need to promote and maintain good oral health! We invite you to schedule your appointment if you would like to learn more.
