Fluoride

Fluoride Treatment in Our Dental Offices, Milton and Shoreline

Fluoride therapy is being used for preventing dental caries, better known as cavities, since 1940. Cavities are usually caused by acid-producing bacteria that collect around the teeth and gums and build up plaque. According to the WHO's List of Essential Medicines, sodium fluoride is the most effective and safe medicine needed in a health system. Fluoride treatments help dentists treat several bone diseases. Significantly, the treatment is recommended to preclude tooth decay in children older than 6 months in areas where the drinking water has a low amount of fluoride.

Some factors that may increase the risk of cavities are:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Tooth enamel defects
  • Poor diet
  • Exposed root surfaces of teeth
  • Restorations or fillings
  • Severe bacteria in mouth
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Lack of regular professional dental treatments and others

How We Can Help You

If you or any of your family members are at a risk of developing dental cavities, you should go for a professional fluoride treatment as soon as possible. Fluoride preparation used in dental offices is highly recommended, and more effective than tubes of toothpaste or fluoride mouth rinses that you may buy at a pharmacy or store.

Reign Dental provides the best fluoride treatment to prevent and get rid of severe cavities. Professional fluoride treatments usually take just a few minutes. We may recommend you get treated every three, six, or 12 months after a diagnosis of your current oral health status.
