Is Your Cavity Prevention Plan Missing Fluoride?

Posted .

If you have a routine of inconsistent daily oral hygiene or don’t drink fluoridated water regularly, these can be negatively affecting your tooth enamel’s mineral density. If any symptoms of the demineralization of tooth enamel are revealed during your dental exam, our dentists may recommend fluoride supplements.

At Dental Solutions of Northboro, we can provide fluoride treatment at the end of your dental checkup as a way to conveniently enhance the mineral density of your smile. If we have deep concerns about the quality of your tooth enamel, our dentists may also prescribe fluoride supplements for you to take every day.

Your options for fluoride supplements can include a concentrated mouth rinse or fluoride toothpaste that you should use on your teeth at bedtime or when you know you won’t be eating or drinking for an hour or more. This ensures that the fluoride has time to penetrate your teeth.

We encourage you to also have a habit of brushing your teeth twice a day and using fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush, and then taking the time to floss between each tooth along your gum line.

To learn more about how you can improve your smile with prescription fluoride supplements in Northborough, Massachusetts, please contact Dental Solutions of Northboro at 508-393-4777 today and arrange a time to speak with our dentists and team.
