The Benefits of a Professional Fluoride Treatment

Posted .

Do you ever wonder why our dental team provides a professional fluoride treatment during your dental checkups? If so, our dentist, Dr. Paul Szmanda, Jim Soblewski, Yvonne Schulke and Thomas Nichols, will be more than happy to tell you why. Professional fluoride treatments can help you, your smile, and your oral health. This is because they can:

-Help you prevent dental issues: This is because the fluoride seeps into the tooth enamel and strengthens it. When the enamel is tough, bacteria and other harmful substances have a hard time attacking the shell and creating problems, like tooth decay and enamel erosion.

-Help you prevent or treat tooth sensitivity: This is because they can strengthen the teeth and close the channels that lead to the tooth nerves. When these channels are open, it can increase your chances of having extremely sensitive teeth.

-Help you reverse the early stages of tooth decay: This is because the fluoride works hard to restore weak and soft tooth enamel. As it hardens the enamel, the bacteria start losing control of the effects they have on the teeth. This can reverse a cavity, but only at the early stages.
