Fluoride Treatment in Bountiful

At Dentist of Bountiful, we prioritize your oral health and want to be the reason for your smile. After your dental cleanings, we recommend applying fluoride to your teeth to provide an extra layer of protection. Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens your teeth after the polishing process of the cleanings. 

If you would like to give your teeth that additional layer of protection or have any questions regarding fluoride, please give us a call today at (801) 292-4440 to schedule an appointment.

How Fluoride Fends Off Tooth Decay

Fluoride is like a shield for your teeth. When you eat or drink, sugars and starches can leave harmful acids on your teeth. Fluoride steps in and helps rebuild the weakened tooth enamel, the hard outer layer of your teeth. This process not only repairs the enamel but also makes it harder for acids to break it down again. Plus, fluoride can slow down the growth of bacteria that cause cavities and reduce the amount of acid they produce. 

Common Concerns

Is fluoride treatment safe for everyone?
Yes, fluoride treatment is generally safe for children and adults. If you have any allergies, concerns, or questions let the dentist know. The doctor will go over with you in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Will fluoride treatment make my teeth look different?
No, fluoride is a clear solution that won’t change the look of your teeth. The mixture will help provide an extra layer of protection and increase their health.

This simple mineral is a powerful tool in fighting tooth decay and keeping your smile healthy. Floride treatment may be a great option for you. 

If you have any questions about your dental health or are considering fluoride treatment, schedule an appointment with our friendly dental team. Call our office today to book your appointment and take the first step towards radiant dental health! (801) 292-4440

However, depending on an individual case, the dentist may need to use other treatments like fillings for advanced cavities to help maintain strong oral health.

In some rare cases, patients may experience an allergic reaction, leading to symptoms such as rash, swelling, and itching.

Yes, fluoride treatment helps strengthen and provides an extra layer of protection, but it does not guarantee that the tooth will not get a cavity.
