Once your dental exam and cleaning is complete, your hygienist will apply fluoride to your teeth. This only takes a few minutes but can do wonders for your oral health.
Fluoride coats your teeth, preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface, which is what leads to cavities and decay. Your hygienist might also recommend adding products to your home care routine, such as mouthwash, gel, or antibacterial rinse. You can buy some of these products over-the-counter while others require a prescription.
The team at Today’s Dental is happy to answer any questions you have about the benefits of fluoride and the best products for your unique situation. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today.
