It is recommended that you get a professional fluoride treatment at your dentist’s every 3, 6, or 12 months, depending on your oral health. Fluoride treatment is especially helpful if you’re more susceptible of developing dental caries, or cavities.
Fluoride has been an essential oral health treatment and helps build strong teeth and prevent cavities. It promotes healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums. Although fluoride cannot remove decay, it works by restoring minerals to the tooth surface where bacteria may have eroded the enamel. It also inhibits the growth of harmful oral bacteria.
