At some point or another, we’ve all heard about fluoride. Chances are you’ve also heard people say there is no need for fluoride, however, today Sweetwater Dental Studio would like to discuss the benefits of fluoride and the impact it can have one our oral health and smiles. At our practice, we recommend fluoride treatments in Sugar Land, TX for most of our patients and there are some good reasons why.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found all over our planet Earth, from our soil and rocks to our food and even water. Research has shown that fluoride can be a beneficial tool when used for dental care, actually strengthening teeth, remineralizing them, and even protecting them from decay. Due to this discovery, fluoride is now also added to a variety of products, including toothpaste, mouthwash, and even bottled water.
Were you aware that tooth decay is the most common chronic condition in the world? What makes this even sadder is the fact that dental decay and cavities can be completely avoided with preventive dentistry. Fluoride treatments are extremely quick, effective, and painless and are applied directly to the teeth. Once applied, the fluoride helps to strengthen teeth, even remineralizing them. Recent research has even shown that fluoride treatments can reverse early signs of decay completely.
