Your teeth have a protective layer of tooth enamel. The mineral density of this biological substance helps prevent tooth decay and also allows you to chew tough foods. Consuming acidic foods and beverages on a regular basis can gradually deplete the mineral content of your tooth enamel.
In time, this can leave you with teeth prone to cavities and tooth sensitivity. One method of helping restore the strength of your tooth enamel and preserve healthy teeth is to receive a fluoride treatment at Toluca Dental Care.
Dr. Nilesh Pema usually suggests doing this immediately following your regular dental checkup and cleaning to ensure your teeth have been fully cleaned and any other problems have been addressed.
During the treatment, concentrated fluoride will be poured into a special tray that is inserted into your mouth and held there for a few minutes. You will need to avoid eating and drinking for up to an hour to maximize the fluoride saturation in your tooth enamel.
If you’ve been struggling with significant tooth sensitivity issues or if your teeth show severe signs of weakened tooth enamel, your dentist might prescribe daily-use fluoride supplements.
