Many years ago, scientists started to notice that children who were born and raised in areas with natural fluoride in drinking water had fewer cavities than children in other areas. Fluoride absorbed by your body when teeth are forming (during mother’s pregnancy to early childhood) integrates into the structure of enamel and makes it stronger.
After tooth eruption, fluoride can be naturally found in the food we eat or supplemented in toothpaste, mouthwash, and fluoride treatment offered by our dentist and team at Bosler Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry. This preventive treatment helps inhibit dental decay by strengthening the enamel of the teeth, which wears away after time and use.
Offered for both children and adults, fluoride treatment is a safe and easy way to ensure your teeth have longer life spans. Our dental office usually offers this treatment during your normal six-month checkup, and we are happy to discuss the benefits of this treatment with you during your visit with us.
If you and your family live in an area that has no fluoride in its drinking water, we invite you to consult our dentist and physician about fluoride tablets that are available for children.
