Your teeth are made up of many minerals, including phosphate, calcium, and fluoride, which are vital to keeping them strong and healthy. Your teeth lose and regain these minerals every day through the processes of demineralization and remineralization and the loss of too many minerals can weaken your teeth and make them prone to decay or breakage. As local Gainesville dentists, we at Premier Dental Team take pride in the healthy smiles of our patients and as such, recommend a periodic fluoride treatment process to strengthen the outer layer of enamel and guard against deterioration.
Fluoride is one of the minerals that occur naturally in much of the food that you eat as well as in most water supplies. It is also among the most significant factors in maintaining healthy teeth. Fluoride treatments are another way that you can improve your overall oral health. There are many things that can lead to the breakdown of tooth enamel and the Gainesville dentists at Premier Dental Team are always available to discuss your options regarding fluoride treatments. If you experience any of the following conditions, they should be brought to the attention of your dentist to evaluate the cause and determine your best course of action.
There are many ways in which your fluoride intake can be increased to ensure that your teeth remain strong and healthy.
