Would Your Smile Benefit From Fluoride Supplements?

Posted .

Practicing your oral hygiene routine inconsistently or not having access to fluoridated water can cause the mineral density of your tooth enamel to become depleted. Our dentist can help you treat symptoms of weak tooth enamel with fluoride treatment and prescription fluoride supplements.

Our team at Chandler Dental Excellence can apply a fluoride treatment to your teeth following the completion of your dental checkup. This is a very convenient method to improve your smile’s mineral density. If Dr. Kerry Taylor is further concerned about your tooth enamel, he may also recommend that you take a fluoride supplement on a daily basis to protect your teeth from decay.

There are different types of fluoride supplements, including a potent mouth rinse or toothpaste that is rich in fluoride. It’s best to use the supplement product right at bedtime or during a period when you are confident you won’t eat or drink for a minimum of an hour. You need to give the fluoride time to soak into the tooth enamel.

You should pair your fluoride supplement with an effective habit of tooth brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste containing fluoride, and be sure to floss between every tooth in your smile.
