Fluoride is a natural mineral found in water and many foods that helps to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Fluoride strengthens the enamel (outer layer) of the tooth. It is important to use a fluoride toothpaste, and you can also use mouthwash and other products with fluoride to supplement these sources. When you visit our dental office in Provo, Utah, our dentist and dental team will apply a fluoride treatment to further strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay. Fluoride treatments can be applied in the form of a varnish, gel, or foam. For more information on fluoride and the fluoride treatments we offer at Robert L. Hamblin, DDS, please call us soon. Our dentist and dental team are dedicated to helping you maintain optimal oral health!
