Got Fluoride?

Tooth Cavity and RemineralizationAs we age, wrinkles and graying hair become evident. For adults, there’s no reversing the aging process. But happily, a lifetime of fluoride use can help reverse the demineralizing process!

Bacterial plaque continually forms on teeth, producing acids that initiate the process of decay. That’s DE-mineralization. Fluoride helps add back calcium and phosphate. That’s RE-mineralization.

Keep your fluoridation levels up! If you’re an adult, you should make a topical fluoride treatment part of your regular hygiene appointment.

Don’t forget to request it the next time you’re in the office!
