At New Dental Images we offer professional fluoride treatment in Elk Grove. Fluoride can help reduce dental cavities, especially in young children. Fluoride is found in toothpaste, mouthwash and water but professional treatments at our dentist office have a much higher level. We now offer affordable fluoride treatments in Elk Grove to help support the health of the teeth of our patients.
Prevent Tooth Decay
One of the reasons for tooth decay is that the teeth lose and gain minerals every day. Bacteria and the sugars they feed on cause plaque, which erodes away a tooth’s enamel layer. On the other hand, minerals like calcium and fluoride help to replenish this layer of enamel. Tooth decay is a risk when the enamel wears away faster than it can be redeposited. Fluoride treatments help the teeth resist tooth decay and can even reverse early stage tooth decay.
Professional Fluoride Treatment In Elk Grove
At New Dental Images, we can apply fluoride treatments in the forms of foam, varnish or gels. With varnishes and gels, the fluoride is brushed on the teeth, while foams are applied with a mouth guard. Gels can also be applied with a mouth guard. The treatments have considerably more fluoride than anything our patients could buy in a regular toothpaste or mouthwash. Fluoride is especially important if you suffer from dry mouth or xerostomia, periodontal disease, have dental crowns, wear braces or have had many cavities in the past.
The dentists at New Dental Images are not only board certified but family friendly. Our treatments, including fluoride treatments, are affordable. We also perform cosmetic dentistry as well as general dentistry and oral surgery. For fluoride treatment in Elk Grove, give us a call.
