Protect your smile from cavities with additional fluoride treatments
Keeping the smile healthy is easy with our team at Msmiline Cosmetic Dentistry of Pierrefonds, Quebec. Dr. Ramin Mirmooji and his associates educate patients on ways to protect their smiles with the added benefit of fluoride treatments.
What are fluoride treatments?
Our dentists describe fluoride treatments as one of many preventative solutions to protect the smile from decay and disease. Fluoride is best described as a naturally occurring mineral that has been shown to help strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid and plaque.
What type of fluoride can be used?
Depending on your dental needs, there are several different types of fluoride treatments available. Your dentist may prescribe some after an initial examination or during regular check-ups and cleanings. Others may be offered as part of a professionally recommended home care plan to ensure optimal oral health. Toothpaste and mouthwash also include fluoride to help strengthen the natural tooth enamel from problems as well.
What are the advantages of fluoride treatments?
Fluoride treatments can help reduce the risk of cavities and other decay-causing conditions and protect the teeth from future damage even if you have a diet high in sugar or carbohydrates – which are known causes of dental issues such as decay and gum disease.
Can fluoride varnish be used for adults?
Dental fluoride treatment can be used for both children and adults as an extra step in protecting the smile.
What is SDF treatment?
SDF is an acronym for “silver diamine fluoride.” This element can be used to remineralize dentin affected by a dental cavity, sometimes referred to as dental caries or tooth decay. This is one way to eliminate the need to remove surrounding healthy tooth tissue when preparing for a filling placement. Because it is more conservative, it is better at maintaining the natural tooth’s structure and strength even after tooth decay has developed. If you are a candidate for this type of fluoride treatment, our team will educate you on the benefits and walk you through the process.
