Preventative Dentistry - Flouride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that often appears naturally in water and in certain foods. It serves to strengthen tooth enamel and protect against decay. Every day, through a process called 'demineralization', the tooth enamel is attacked by acid which is created by plaque bacteria and sugars and acids from the foods and drinks we consume. Unless these protective minerals are replaced ('remineralization'), the enamel is weakened and susceptible to decay. We offer fluoride treatments for children and also for adults who are more at risk for decay.
