We provide two types of fluoride treatment in Newtown, Connecticut: in-office fluoride treatment and take-home fluoride trays. Both types of fluoride treatment are effective at protecting your smile from tooth decay. Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and several types of food. As minerals are lost from the tooth enamel due to acids, plaque, bacteria, and sugars, the enamel layer can break down and become more susceptible to tooth decay. Fluoride and other minerals help to repair and rebuild the enamel, protecting the teeth from decay. We recommend that you use a toothpaste that contains fluoride, and you can use mouthwashes and other products with fluoride as well. Professional fluoride treatments available from the dentist also help to strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay.
Our skilled dentists, Drs. Dudley, Condon, and Golisano, provide professional fluoride treatments to help you prevent tooth decay. In-office fluoride treatments are quick and comfortable. We also offer take-home fluoride trays for those who would prefer to use fluoride in the comfort of their home whenever it fits their schedule. If you would like to learn more about fluoride and preventive dentistry, we invite you to call or visit us at Newtown Dentistry today.
