Every time you eat or drink something, there’s a good chance your mouth (specifically your teeth) is under attack. This occurs when the acids and sugars in the food and beverages we love to consume attack our teeth, causing cavities and enamel loss. That’s why we turn to fluoride, because it’s been proven effective at preventing cavities and tooth decay. It also stops nasty plaque from building up and hardening on your tooth’s surface.
Have you ever had a fluoride treatment at Grove City Family Dentistry? If you have, then you know just how non-invasive, easy, and pain-free it is to complete. Fluoride treatment only takes about a few minutes, but the results are meant to last. After your treatment is complete, you might be asked to wait about a half-hour to rinse, eat, or drink in order to make sure all of the fluoride is effectively absorbed into your smile. Fluoride treatment needs vary from patient to patient, so you’ll want to talk to your dentist about your needs. We recommend a professional fluoride varnish application twice every year or more, depending on your risk level for cavities and decay.
