Just like your body needs vitamins and exercise to enhance its defenses against disease and injury, your teeth need protection against decay. Accordingly, fluoride is one of the most potent means for reinforcing your teeth against cavities and other forms of dental damage. At Sopris Smiles, we want to ensure that your teeth remain healthy for years to come, and we can help you achieve this through our highly effective fluoride treatments in Englewood.
What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found anywhere from rocks and soil to water and even air!
Fluoride can bind to the partially eroded minerals in your tooth enamel. When this happens, it creates a protective film over your teeth, especially in the areas left most vulnerable after a bout with tooth decay. Fluoride also attracts calcium and phosphate ions to the teeth, making them stronger and more resistant to cavities.
