Fluoride is for kids, right? Yes, it is, but it is also for adults just like you! Fluoride is not just a mineral famed for preventing cavities, it is also a terrific tool for protecting, remineralizing, and desensitizing teeth. We offer fluoride treatments for kids at every visit because, yes, fluoride treatments do protect those precious growing teeth against the daily attack of sugars and bacteria. We offer the treatments to adults, as needed, for the very same thing and more. Even adult teeth come under attack from the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the stress we are under, leading to adult cavities, decay at the gumline, and sensitivity. One of the things that can put stress on the integrity of your teeth is dry mouth, or xerostomia, a condition in which your salivary glands do not produce enough saliva. Saliva isn’t just there to help you chew and digest your food. It also helps protect your teeth by rinsing away food and with an enzyme that breaks down starches. Fluoride helps protect your teeth, stop sensitivity, and rebuild enamel. See why fluoride isn’t just for kids anymore?
