What is fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and in many foods. Many communities also supplement their water supply with fluoride. Fluoride can help to protect your teeth from decay and ensure that your smile stays healthy. Our knowledgeable dentist, Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt, recommends that you use a toothpaste that includes fluoride, and fluoridated mouthwashes and other products are also available to boost your fluoride intake. We provide professional fluoride treatment in Logan, Utah to help you maintain good oral health.

Is fluoride good for your teeth?

Yes, fluoride helps to keep your teeth healthy and free from tooth decay. As acids, bacteria, and sugars attack the tooth enamel every day, fluoride helps to remineralize the enamel surface of the tooth. By remineralizing the enamel, fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt will be able to determine whether you are in need of professional fluoride treatment to further protect your teeth. Professional fluoride treatments are available in the form of gels, varnishes, and foams.
