Do teeth need fluoride?

Posted on 1/24/2022 by Dr. Brandon Cooley
Do teeth need fluoride?When you come to our practice, you will find knowledgeable and experienced dentists that will advise and educate you on the appropriate dental practices. One of the things that many patients ask about is whether fluoride is important for healthy teeth. Needs can be thought of as being constantly growing, and therefore need minerals to strengthen them. Fluoride is a vital mineral that strengthens teeth and enables them to withstand corrosive elements that may arise. It is therefore important to get fluoride treatment to improve the health of your teeth.

What is fluoride

Fluoride is a naturally occurring compound that can be found in soil and sometimes in water. Mineral water particularly is an important source of fluoride. Drinking water plenty in minerals such as fluoride will provide your teeth with essential variables for strong healthy teeth.

Topical Fluoride

If you cannot find mineral water that contains fluoride, you can always come to our practice to get fluoride treatment. The fluoride that you will receive at the dentist's office is what is known as topical fluoride. Our dentist will generally apply the paste to your teeth and let it settle for a few minutes before washing it off. Children get a pea-sized amount for their teeth, which is important for the proper growth and development of their teeth. It is a safe procedure that our dentists advocate for our patients if they want to have strong teeth for a long time.
