Fluoride Treatment Mississauga
Have you ever had a fluoride treatment? Our dentist near you offers fluoride treatments at your cleanings and exams. Fluoride is used to protect your teeth, so it’s something that you should consider getting while at the dentist.
For more information about fluoride treatment in Mississauga, talk to Dr. Hytham Elwi. Our dentist in Mississauga would be happy to talk to you about ways you can protect your teeth.
What Is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a mineral that you can get from food, water, supplements, and more. Not everyone gets enough fluoride, though. You may get fluoride treatments from our dentist to provide extra protection to your teeth.
Fluoride helps by restoring the tooth’s surface and preventing bacteria from growing. It strengthens the outer layer of the teeth, which helps to prevent many dental issues, such as cavities. In addition to getting fluoride treatments at the dentist, you can drink water with added fluoride or use toothpaste that contains fluoride.
How Often Should You Have Fluoride Treatments?
Fluoride treatments are recommended once every 3, 6, or 12 months. You can have fluoride treatments done at Smile Horizons Dental Arts. When you go to the dentist for a cleaning or exam, you can talk to our dentist about fluoride and how often you need it. Depending on how many cavities you get, you may need more frequent treatments.
Is Fluoride Only for Children?
Dentists often recommend fluoride treatments for children. It’s also a good idea for adults to get fluoride treatments in some cases.
Because fluoride offers extra protection, it can help to prevent cavities. If you get frequent cavities, fluoride treatments may help. They can also help to prevent dental issues and promote dental hygiene altogether.
To determine if you need fluoride treatments, talk to our dentist at Smile Horizons Dental Arts. Our dentist can help you to decide whether fluoride treatments are right for you.
