Healthy teeth are achieved through daily dental care and require lots of attention. We are happy to offer support in improving your oral hygiene, and part of this includes taking good care of your gums and teeth by attending routine dental checkups twice a year. During dental visits here in Williamsburg and Norge, VA, we can expose your teeth to fluoride to make them stronger and healthier.
Why is fluoride so important to your smile? It is a natural mineral that is found in food and water, and it offers nourishment and strength for the teeth to help them ward off bacteria that builds in the mouth. Your teeth go through a daily process of demineralization and remineralization, and if they don’t receive proper exposure to fluoride daily, they will only be demineralization, making the teeth weak and vulnerable to tooth sensitivity, decay and gum disease. You can help keep your teeth in good shape by using a fluoride toothpaste when you brush twice a day and rinsing with fluoride mouthwash.
Our team also offer professional fluoride treatment when you visit our office for routine dental care. It comes in the form of a varnish that we apply to the teeth after the dental cleaning and is usually flavored to make the process enjoyable. Our dental hygienist may use a tray or brush to apply fluoride and then allow minerals to soak into the tooth enamel. Then, you can rinse your mouth and complete the appointment.
