Make Your Teeth Stronger and Healthier

If you could look at your tooth enamel and see it on a microscopic level, you would find that it is composed of densely packed mineral crystals. When you consume acidic foods and drinks it can erode some of these microscopic crystals. This is compounded by the erosive effects of the bacteria in your mouth.

Unless it is countered in some way, this process known as demineralization can, weaken tooth enamel, increasing your chances of developing cavities and tooth sensitivity issues.

Exposing your teeth to fluoride helps to refortify these microscopic minerals in a process is known as remineralization. This effectively helps to prevent sensitivity and tooth decay.

If you’ve had issues with sensitivity and cavities from insufficient fluoride, your Wynatte Chu, DDS dentist might recommend having a routine fluoride treatment performed. The procedure is quick and often times can be performed at the end of your dental checkup.

Most of the time your dentist can performs the fluoride treatment by pouring a concentrated fluoride gel into trays held in your mouth for a few minutes. You should avoid eating or drinking to allow the fluoride to deeply penetrate the enamel of your teeth.

If you have questions about dental fluoride treatment, or you’ve experienced symptoms indicative of enamel erosion, you should call Wynatte Chu, DDS at 347-868-6546 to schedule an appointment.
