Is Your Smile Lacking Fluoride?

Posted .

Tooth sensitivity can manifest as severe and persistent discomfort in teeth that are contacted by sweet, acidic, hot or cold products. The development of tooth sensitivity is typically the result of weakened tooth enamel affected by poor oral health or by frequently consuming acidic beverages. If you have sensitive teeth, we can offer professional fluoride treatments to improve the health of your teeth.

You can protect your tooth enamel from becoming weakened by reducing the acid in your mouth with consistent daily oral hygiene practices. When the tooth enamel loses its mineral density, it can suffer microscopic channels that affect the sensitive layer of dentin, resulting in tooth sensitivity and risk of cavities and tooth abscess.

The benefits of fluoride restore the mineral density of your tooth enamel and strengthen the quality of your teeth. Your options for fluoride treatment at Dentist 4 Life - Mark DeVuyst DDS, PC can involve prescription fluoride supplements and in-office fluoride applications, as well as improvements to your oral care routine to protect the tooth enamel from oral acids.

We invite you to contact our office at 586-416-1625 today if you are interested in receiving fluoride treatments in Clinton Township, Michigan, and would like to arrange a visit with Dr. Mark DeVuyst.
