Fluoride is used to help strengthen teeth and protect them from decay. As you eat and drink throughout the day, bacteria, sugars, and acids constantly attack and demineralize the enamel layer of your teeth. Fluoride works to remineralize the tooth enamel to prevent decay and cavities. In addition, fluoride strengthens the teeth as they develop, making fluoride very important for children as their teeth grow in.
Dr. Rana recommends professional fluoride treatment during your regular dental checkups and may suggest further fluoride treatment if your teeth are prone to decay or if you are not receiving a sufficient amount of fluoride from other sources. Professional fluoride is available in the form of a gel, foam, or foam.
