Cavities can cause growing discomfort and sensitivity in a tooth. Without professional treatment from our dentists, the growing area of tooth decay could lead to tooth loss and potentially other medical complications.
Fortunately, exposing your teeth to fluoride helps to rejuvenate the mineral density of your tooth enamel. This natural process of remineralization can give you stronger teeth that are better able to resist the ravages of tooth decay.
If your routine dental checkup with Drs. Waite and Trebisovsky reveal early signs of tooth enamel erosion, they might recommend administering a fluoride treatment as well as additional fluoride supplements.
Our dentists can administer the fluoride treatment at the end of your dental checkup to quickly bolster the mineral density of your tooth enamel.
Using prescription fluoride supplements like a concentrated mouth rinse and brushing your teeth with a fluoridated toothpaste can also help maintain strong tooth enamel. You might want to also consider making changes to your diet by cutting back on acidic foods and beverages.
If you live in the Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, area and you are concerned about the strength of your teeth, you should call 763-561-7000 to schedule a dental exam and fluoride treatment at Sandpiper Dental.
