Fluoride treatment in Smithfield, NC
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps to build strong teeth and also prevents cavities. It’s been a crucial oral health treatment for over 50 years. Fluoride builds healthy tooth enamel, which is the exterior protective layer around each tooth, and combats germs that attack teeth and gums.
Fluoride is particularly helpful if you’re at increased risk of getting dental caries, or cavities. Cavities happen when germs build on teeth and develop a sticky film of plaque. Plaque releases an acid that erodes teeth. When the plaque breaks down the enamel layer, bacteria can easily infect and harm the nerves and blood at the core of the tooth as well.
Our dentist offers professional fluoride treatments in the form of a varnish. A prescription strength toothpaste is also available to keep the fluoride concentration up at home.
