Fluoride, Fluoride, Fluoride
Fluoride helps adults and children.
Fluoride helps remineralize weakened tooth enamel & aids in reversing early signs of tooth decay.
Dr. Alrez always recommends in-office fluoride rinses for any patient with a high to moderate risk of decay. At our office we have two types of fluoride, a topical fluoride which is applied to the surface of your teeth or a Fluoride rinse; it’s all about patient preference.
Dr. Alrez may also recommend an adjunct to your at home routine. Dr. Alrez sometimes will encourage patients to use prescription fluoride rinse or prescription toothpaste for patients with pre-existing restorative work or patients with a high to moderate risk of decay.
Fluoride is naturally found in most water sources. Most water suppliers have fluoridated water to help prevent tooth decay. If you are unsure if you have fluoride in your water, call your supplier and ask.
