Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been scientifically proven to prevent decay and strengthen tooth enamel. While fluoride is generally available through your water supply and diet, Drs. Laban and Monica Bontrager utilize fluoride in our dental office for added strength and protection. Fluoride can also be used to decrease tooth sensitivity. We offer both topical fluoride, which is applied directly to your tooth enamel, and systemic fluoride, which is ingested through medication. We will help you determine which type of fluoride will work best for each member of your family.
In children, fluoride bonds with growing tooth enamel to strengthen it permanently. For adults, fluoride acts as a protective shield to stop decay from forming. When you and your family visit Bristol Dental Clinic, our dentists will provide fluoride treatment as part of each dental cleaning and exam. If necessary, we may also recommend certain fluoride-enriched products to use at home. No matter what form of fluoride will work for you, we are excited to help you achieve optimal oral health and spare no expense in helping you reach your goals. If you would like to learn more about fluoride in Bristol, Florida, we encourage you to call or visit our dental office today. We hope to hear from you soon!
