Fluoride TreatmentsSPOKANE, WASHINGTON Fluoride is a natural occurring mineral in water. Research indicates fluoride can help prevent cavities in children and adults in at least two way: Making the tooth enamel stronger against acids in the mouth formed by bacteria and sugar. Helping reduce the number of bacteria on the tooth surface. Water fluoridation is a common practice in the U.S. public water systems to supplement the naturally occurring fluoride in the water to the optimum amount for your teeth. The city of Spokane has chosen to remove all natural fluoride from the public water systems. The lack of fluoride for infants and children during the crucial formative years may contribute to tooth decay. Because of this, it is very important for children to take a prescription fluoride supplement. Bottled water and home treatment systems generally do not have fluoride. Private well water may or may not be fluoridated and can be tested for fluoride content. “Topical” applications such as toothpaste and mouth rinses can supply that fluoride. If you’re concerned about getting enough fluoride to protect your teeth, MyDentist offers fluoride treatments in the office to make sure all teeth receive the benefits of fluoride.
