Fluoride treatment can help prevent tooth decay by making enamel more resilient to acid attack caused by bacteria in the mouth.
Wildwood Dental Clinic in Saskatoon offers fluoride treatment for both children and adults. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is commonly found and widely distributed in nature. It is even found in some foods and municipal water supplies, helping our teeth protect themselves against demineralization and decay.
Fluoride treatment at the dentist helps prevent cavities by working with saliva to harden the enamel of adult and baby teeth, essentially boosting the natural healing process and strengthening enamel. As a result, fluoride works as a great preventive treatment for cavities.
What does fluoride treatment entail?
Fluoride treatment just takes a couple of minutes. After your teeth are professionally cleaned by our dental hygienist we will apply the fluoride application to the front and back of your teeth. .Fluoride treatments can be repeated multiple times per year - ask your dentists about a custom schedule that is tailored to your individual oral health needs. Fluoride treatment is most effective when used in conjunction with daily brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings.
