At the practice of Robert W Marder DMD, PLLC, we can strengthen and rebuild tooth structure when we provide a fluoride treatment. By applying the fluoride mineral directly to the surface of your teeth, our dentist helps them to become more resistant to tooth decay. Please call our offices to see if you can benefit from receiving fluoride in New City, New York.
One of our greatest allies in the fight against tooth decay is fluoride. As natural mineral find in most foods and water, fluoride can be used to prevent tooth decay and, in some cases, reverse decay already present in the mouth. In addition to food and water, fluoride can be received from toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels. If you or your child isn’t receiving enough fluoride, Dr. Robert Marder may recommend a fluoride supplement in the form of gel or drops.
While fluoride is effective in improving your overall oral health, it can’t fight the battle against decay alone. For optimal oral health, remember to brush and floss your teeth every day, maintain a healthy and balanced diet, limit your snacking between meals, and visit the dentist every six months for your cleanings and exams. If it has been over six months since your last appointment, call our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert Marder. Together we can achieve a healthy and radiant smile.
