Fluoride is important to keeping your teeth healthy and strong!
In adults, fluoride helps to stop tooth decay by making the enamel on your teeth more resistant to acidic attacks from bacteria and sugar. It can also reverse symptoms of early tooth decay. In the case of young children, fluoride treatment is an important part of the tooth-development process.
Most municipal water supplies contain the mineral, and it’s recommended to use toothpaste at home with added fluoride. In addition, topical fluoride applications are available at Glenora Family Dental, and may be recommended in your individualized hygiene program.
