Fluoride and Decay Prevention
Prevention is key. The American Dental Association recommends seeing your dentist at least twice a year for a dental exam to identify and existing, or potential problems. Dental conditions caught in its early stages can be managed faster, and will often times be more cost effective than if left untreated for long periods of time. Our prophylactic cleanings involve the use of an ultrasonic scaler, as well as various hand scales, followed by polishing and fluoride varnish for a painless, clean finish.
Did you know…
that you might be drinking fluoride everyday without knowing it? Many communities add fluoride to the public water supply in an effort to promote better dental health. You can find out if there is fluoride in your tap water by contacting your local water utility. Keep in mind that if your primary source of drinking water is bottled, you may not be getting fluoride. You can contact your bottle water company or manufacturer to find out if fluoride is in your water. If not, speak with your dentist about getting professional fluoride treatments.
