Fluoride is a mineral that helps to strengthen your teeth and rebuild any tooth structure that has been lost. You can access fluoride through toothpaste or in-office fluoride treatments that are easy to incorporate into your preventive teeth cleanings every six months.
Fluoride can often be found in your drinking water; however, it may not be enough to sufficiently protect your teeth. If this is the case, your Greeley, CO dentist is happy to recommend fluoride toothpaste or mouth rinse that you can use at home to help protect your teeth from tooth decay and cavities.
Dr. Bagley often recommends fluoride treatments for children as it helps to build and protect developing teeth. When your child is old enough, we'll let you know if we think they may benefit from adding a fluoride treatment to their routine preventive teeth cleaning. This preventive service is often covered by dental insurance.
If you are an adult who is prone to tooth decay and cavities, you may also benefit from in-office fluoride treatments. Let Dr. Bagley know if you're interested in learning more about how fluoride could protect your smile.
