Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral found in many food and water supplies. Studies have shown that fluoride is effective in the prevention of tooth decay and the build-up of calculus (tartar) and plaque. Topical fluoride is regularly used to improve your oral health and is often found in:

  • In-office dental treatments
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash

Not only can fluoride protect and strengthen teeth against cavities, in certain situations it can also reverse the process of decay that has already affected your smile. For those who are not receiving enough fluoride, Dr. Wood may recommend an additional fluoride supplement in the form of a gel or pill.
