If you want to prevent tooth decay and other major dental issues, then fluoride is the key! Fluoride in Cedar Park, Texas, is a natural mineral that strengthens and nourishes your teeth, giving them the ability to survive. However, oftentimes we don’t receive the necessary amount of fluoride that is recommended. So, to help you keep your smile in tip-top shape, our Discovery Park Dental team recommends doing the following things:

Take advantage of fluoride dental treatment: When you come into our office for a teeth cleaning, make sure to take advantage of our professional fluoride treatment. It will generally come in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it will give you a strong and healthy smile.

Use fluoride toothpaste: It’s best to brush your teeth every morning and every night with fluoride toothpaste. This will help you nourish your smile on a daily basis.

Drink fluoridated water: Fortunately, each city provides fluoridated water in their tap systems, so if you drink enough tap water, you will receive the fluoride you need. You can also find fluoridated water in specific bottled waters.

Use fluoride mouthwash: Fluoride mouthwash is also beneficial. It can deeply clean your smile and nourish your teeth. It’s best to rinse with this mouthwash once a day.

Eat foods that contain fluoride: There are a few foods in the world today that can help you increase your fluoride intake. Please ask your dentist about the specific foods that are recommended.

If you have any questions or if you would like to know more about fluoride, please remember that you can always call 512.260.8330 and talk to your dentist, Dr. Nitya Balan, or a member of our dental team. We are more than happy to help you!
