Fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral, can help to protect your teeth from tooth decay. Fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel, preventing tooth decay and making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque, bacteria, and sugars. At Dr. Sharon D. Sims DDS General Dentistry, we provide fluoride treatment to supplement your fluoride intake and protect your smile. Fluoride is naturally found in water and many foods; in addition, you can use toothpaste and mouthwash that contain fluoride. Our professional fluoride treatment further strengthens your teeth to keep your smile in the best of health. Fluoride treatment is available in the form of a varnish, foam, or gel.
