How Does Fluoride Protect Teeth?

Fluoride benefits both children and adults. Here’s how:

Before teeth break through the gums, the fluoride taken in from foods, beverages and dietary supplements makes tooth enamel (the hard surface of the tooth) stronger, making it easier to resist tooth decay. This provides what is called a “systemic” benefit.

After teeth erupt, fluoride helps rebuild weakened tooth enamel and reverses early signs of tooth decay. When you brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, or use other fluoride dental treatment by your dentist, the fluoride is applied to the surface of your teeth. This provides what is called a “topical” benefit.

At Kyle Parkway Dentistry, when always encourage our High Caries risk patients to look in to professional fluoride treatment. Also, we keep our fees for preventive services lower than area average so people can afford it.

Professional Fluoride treatment involves placing Fluoride varnish on your teeth or making custom fluoride trays or prescribing stronger fluoride tooth-paste or combination of all of them.

  • Just got done with an initial exam and have to say I’m blown away by the business! I haven’t been to a dentist in waaay too long because I have a fear of the dentist, they really took the time to figure out what my fears and apprehension was about and made me feel super comfortable. If you haven’t been in a while or just generally feel fear of dentists, this is a great place to go. Super nice and helpful staff, and a super comfortable environment. If I could give 6 stars I would!
