Taking proper care of your teeth is incredibly important. That is why brushing twice a day, flossing regularly and using an anti septic mouthwash are a part of a regular oral hygiene routine. But did you know that there is more that you can do to protect your teeth? Aside from targeting harmful bacteria, like plaque, there are things that you can do to help strengthen your tooth enamel. Our Foxboro general dentist can provide you and your family with regular tooth treatments, such as fluoride treatments, here at Advanced Dental Care to help strengthen your tooth enamel.
We all know that plaque and tartar buildup along our teeth and gumline as we eat and drink throughout the day. While this should still remain a big concern when it comes to your oral health, you should also be aware of how your tooth enamel is affected throughout the day as well. True, your tooth enamel is subject to tooth decay because of plaque buildup, which is why brushing and flossing are so important, but plaque and bacteria buildup can also affect the amount of fluoride found in your tooth enamel. Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in the foods and drinks that we consume, including water. As we eat, fluoride strengthens our tooth enamel by means of remineralization. But the harmful, acidic affects of plaque and other bacteria can also take these minerals away and weaken our tooth enamel which is what makes them more susceptible to cavities. This is called demineralization. Here at Advanced Dental Care, our Foxboro general dentist Dr. Naiman can provide you with a fluoride treatment that will help strengthen your tooth enamel. Fluoride therapy can help strengthen your teeth and remineralize them with the substances that help keep them strong against tooth decay.
If you are looking for tooth treatments that will help prevent tooth decay and will strengthen your tooth enamel, then our Foxboro general dentist here at Advanced Dental Care can provide you with the care that you need.
