Are Adult Fluoride Treatments Important?

August 6, 2018

Although we often hear about the importance of fluoride treatments for children, fluoride treatments for adults are something less discussed. Today, Bishara Dental wants to discuss fluoride and the importance of it for even adult smiles.

About Fluoride

Fluoride is a mineral which naturally occurs all over the Earth, in the rocks, soil, food and even water. Research has shown that fluoride when applied to teeth can actually have quite a few benefits which include strengthening the enamel of teeth, remineralizing teeth, providing additional protection for teeth and even reversing early signs of dental decay. Due to the fact that fluoride has so many benefits for teeth, it is also often added to products such as toothpaste, mouthwash and even bottled water.

At Home Fluoride Treatment

As mentioned previously, there are many products which have fluoride added to them which can be used at home. These include toothpastes and mouthwashes that can be used to help care for your oral health while providing protection and minerals to your teeth.

Professional Fluoride Treatment

At Bishara Dental, we recommend fluoride treatments for all of our patients, including children and adults. The entire process is quite simple and is usually performed during a routine checkup. The fluoride is painted directly onto the teeth surfaces and allowed to dry, providing strength and protection for your smile.
