Fluoride Supplements Can Aid in Cavity Prevention

Posted .

Inconsistencies in your daily oral hygiene routine or a lack of ready access to fluoridated water can potentially affect the mineral density of your tooth enamel. Should a dentist like Dr. Khashayar Khomejany notice early signs of tooth enamel demineralization during your dental exam, they might recommend a simple fluoride treatment.

It can often be performed immediately following the dental exam, to conveniently bolster the mineral strength of your teeth. If they has further concerns about the strength of your tooth enamel they might also give you with a prescription for fluoride supplements.

With fluoride supplements like concentrated toothpaste or mouth rinse it can help to apply them to your teeth right before going to sleep or at a time when you can abstain from eating or drinking anything for at least an hour.

It’s also important to make sure you are brushing your teeth each morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste. This should then be followed by thoroughly flossing between each of your teeth as well as along the gumline.
