Fluoride Can Help YOU Win Against Tooth Decay
What is Fluoride?
It’s a mineral that can prevent tooth decay from progressing, reverse, or stop early tooth decay. It works to protect your teeth by preventing mineral loss in tooth enamel, replacing lost minerals and reducing the ability of bacteria to make acid.
How can you get Fluoride?
- By drinking fluoridated water from a community water supply. (Bottled water does not contain enough water to prevent tooth decay.)
- Brushing regularly with a fluoride toothpaste.
In addition, Dr. Stante may apply a fluoride gel during your regular dental visits. She may also recommend additional treatments to fit your individual needs.
