Are you looking for an easy way to help prevent your teeth from decaying and the problems that result from it? If so, you should consider visiting our North Attleborough dental office, Advanced Dental Care, for a fluoride treatment. Fluoride-containing compounds are known and recognized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as beneficial for oral health and an excellent deterrent for tooth decay. Tooth decay is definitely an oral health issue that you want to avoid; it can lead to uncomfortable and sometimes painful, dental cavities that will need to be repaired by a dental filling, or may lead to a tooth extraction.
Brushing your teeth regularly, flossing, and avoiding sticky, sugary foods are good ways to help prevent tooth decay and cavities, but professional cleanings and fluoride treatments from at our North Attleborough dental office will also help exponentially. A fluoride treatment at Advanced Dental Care contains much more fluoride than you would have in an over-the-counter mouthwash, or regular toothpaste, which is why it is necessary to come into our North Attleborough dental office for the treatment. We typically administer the fluoride treatment as a gel or foam inside a mouth guard that sits in your mouth for a designated amount of time. If our dentist feels that you may need extra doses of fluoride in between visits to Advanced Dental Care, we can prescribe fluoride supplements for you to take at home.
If you have any questions about the benefits of fluoride treatments or how fluoride treatments work at our North Attleborough dental office, do not hesitate to call Advanced Dental Care to voice any questions or concerns. Our helpful, knowledgeable, friendly staff is here to help you. You may also choose to send us a message using the Contact Us form located on our practice’s website.

We hope to see you soon for your next visit at Advanced Dental Care.
