Even though your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are many factors involved in keeping them healthy. Fluoride treatments can help keep your teeth strong and free from dental decay. These general dentistry treatments aid in supporting healthy tooth enamel. They also reduce the opportunities for bad bacteria to attack the teeth and gums.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. For decades, it has been used to fight cavities. When combined with the calcium and phosphate already in the tooth enamel, fluoride from water or toothpaste works to make tooth enamel stronger and more resistant to decay.

Dental Fluoride Supplement

Sugars, including those produced by refined carbohydrates in pastas, white breads, pastries and more, feed the bacteria that produce acids which eat away dental enamel. These acids strip calcium and phosphate from the enamel. Your saliva acts as a disrupting agent as it coats the teeth, adding calcium and phosphate back to the teeth.

Fluoride helps aid in this process so that the tooth enamel is better able to absorb the calcium and phosphate. Additionally, a substance called fluorapatite is created, which makes teeth stronger and resistant to the acids that can cause decay.

Children are prone to eat more than their share of sweets, and their teeth have grooves and fissures that are breeding grounds for decay-causing bacteria. Fluoride treatments are often recommended, along with sealants, to help guard these teeth against decay.

Adults who have a steady diet of refined carbohydrates may also be more prone to cavities due to the sugar load. Individuals with dry mouth or low saliva levels are also more likely to develop caries. Since the amount of saliva may not be enough to constantly wash away bad bacteria, fluoride treatments can add an additional layer of protection to the teeth.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
