Fluoride Treatments

At My Dental Clinic in Calgary, we believe prevention is the best dental treatment available, for this reason, we offer fluoride treatments for our patients. Fluoride has been regarded for many years as an essential mineral for optimal oral health. Tooth decay is caused by acid-producing bacteria that collect on teeth, forming plaque. When fluoride is applied, it can counteract the damaging effects these bacteria have on tooth enamel.

During your dental visit, we can apply fluoride to your teeth. It is a quick and easy process that can give your teeth an extra level of protection against decay. Fluoride can even aid in reversing the earliest signs of dental decay.

Who Can Benefit from Fluoride?

Wondering if fluoride treatment might be the right option for your dental care? We recommend all patients that experience the following, to receive fluoride:

  • Deep pits on chewing surfaces of teeth
  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Frequent sugar or carbohydrate (carb) intake
  • Dry mouth
  • History of tooth decay
  • Exposed root surfaces

Fluoride alone cannot completely protect your teeth, be sure to have proper, routine at home dental care that includes brushing, flossing, and mouthwash. With proper preventative care, you can ensure you don’t have dental issues down the road.

Neglecting fluoride treatments could result in more tooth decay, leading to more costly dental interventions and pain. We especially recommend children and teens receive fluoride treatment.
