As you go about your average day, the natural bacteria in your mouth have the potential to cause a mildly acidic environment. This is even more likely to happen if you’ve struggled to maintain good oral hygiene or if you regularly enjoy acidic foods and beverages.

Increasing the fluoride exposure to your tooth enamel is one of the most effective methods for restoring the microscopic minerals. One effective way to do this is to have a fluoride treatment administered at the end of your regular dental checkup at Price Dental Associates.

A special concentrated fluoride gel will be poured into a special tray that is inserted into your mouth and held there for a few minutes. You will need to avoid eating and drinking for up to an hour to maximize the fluoride saturation in your tooth enamel.

In the future, you might want to also consider brushing your teeth twice a day with a toothpaste with added fluoride. Limiting your consumption of acidic foods and drinks can be very beneficial for maintaining strong tooth enamel.

If you are concerned about the health of your teeth and you’re interested in a fluoride treatment in Houston, Texas, you should call 281-493-1550 to schedule a dental checkup with a fluoride treatment with Dr. Dwight Price.
