Protecting Alexandria VA Teeth
The modern diet is very hard on teeth. Sports drinks, energy drinks, and sodas, sour candies – even fruit juices – all contain acids that are proven to damage enamel. And even if you are very careful to rinse your mouth and brush after eating, your teeth continue to lose some of their protective minerals every day. One of the most effective ways to reverse this damage and help strengthen your teeth is through remineralizing fluoride treatments.
I’m an Adult. Do I Really Need Fluoride?
Dr. Kling always answers this question with a resounding “Yes!”
Fluoride makes your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from food and drink, plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth and really helps prevent tooth decay. Even better, fluoride treatments can actually help reverse tooth decay in its earliest stages and adult root caries can be greatly reduced through these treatments.
I Feel Nauseated When I Receive Fluoride Treatments. What Can You Do?
It’s true. Many of our patients feel a little bit sick just at the idea of a Fluoride treatment. That’s why we use a Fluoride rinse instead of a paste. Our patients love the taste and say it causes much less discomfort and nausea that a Fluoride paste – plus it is even more effective!
