Innovative Techniques to Replace, Regain, and Change Your Life
I have always been susceptible to tooth decay. I’m very grateful Dr. Yu recommended regular fluoride treatments. Since I’ve been seeing him and his team, I have not had any new decay. I highly recommend Dr. Yu. He will offer the care that is best for you.
BENEFITS OF FLUORIDE TREATMENT:
- Prevents loss of important teeth-strengthening minerals.
- Protects permanent teeth from decay and sensitivity.
- Helps to protect margins of crown and bridge restorations.
- Cost-effective strategy for maintaining dental health.
Prevent Tooth Decay
At Grand Avenue Smiles, we offer fluoride treatment to prevent tooth decay for our patients. According to the ADA, fluoride intake is highly effective in preventing tooth decay. Fluoride use may be especially beneficial for those who have elevated risk of tooth decay due to genetics, diet, or other factors.
Fluoride helps reinforce tooth enamel and makes teeth more resistant to the build-up of decay-causing plaque and sugars. It can also speed re-mineralization and disrupt acid erosion.
Fluoride can be professionally applied in our dental office or supplemented at home through the use of fluoridated toothpastes and mouth rinses. Mouth rinses containing fluoride in lower strengths are available over-the-counter. However, stronger mouth rinses can be prescribed as needed. Dr. Yu will advise you about your specific fluoride needs.
We strive to provide you with the highest quality care, including the use of fluoride. For more information or to request an appointment, contact Grand Avenue Smiles.
