Fluoride Fights Cavities!

We know that cavity prevention is a continuous quest. Fortunately, there are many tools we use here at Holmes Orthodontics to help fight tooth decay. The obvious ones include brushing, flossing, and regular checkups. Another great way to fight cavities is the application of topical fluoride treatments.

How Holmes Orthodontics can help: Fluoride Helps Prevent Cavities

Every day, your tooth’s enamel layer gains and loses minerals. Too much demineralization can lead to weakened teeth and increased cavity risk. Fluoride treatments have two major objectives. First, they make teeth more resistant to plaque and acid attacks. Second, they help teeth remineralize more quickly. If you have questions about topical fluoride treatments, please ask! Fluoride treatments are a great option for fighting cavities and strengthening teeth. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure.
