What is fluoride?
Fluoride is a powerful mineral that is found naturally in most diets and has been scientifically proven to strengthen your smile. We offer fluoride in Canton, Georgia, during your routine dental cleanings and exams. Most often, your fluoride will be topically applied through one of the following methods:
- Mouth rinses
If necessary, we also provide oral fluoride supplements through medication. This is called systemic fluoride. At Riverstone Dental Care, we believe in sparing no expense when it comes to taking care of your smile and preventing tooth decay from causing problems.
How does fluoride work?
Fluoride works in two different ways. For children, fluoride is especially important because it bonds with your child’s growing tooth enamel to strengthen it permanently. In adults, fluoride acts as a protective barrier against decay-causing bacteria and food particles. Overall, fluoride is a simple, effective way to stop tooth decay from occurring in the first place. If you have questions about the fluoride in your water system or if you are teeth are protected properly, please do not hesitate to contact our dental office today. Dr. Linkous and Dr. Tran, our kind dentists, are ready and willing to help you understand how fluoride can benefit your smile. We hope to hear from you soon!
