Your routine dental checkup at Frandsen Dental is designed to clean your teeth and monitor the overall health of your mouth. If Drs. Frandsen and Dansie find a problem or has a concern, they will help you understand the most applicable treatment or preventative measures.
If our dentists have a concern about the strength and overall health of your tooth enamel, they might recommend a fluoride treatment. This simple treatment can be administered at the end of your dental exam. It is designed to bolster the mineral strength of your teeth to help prevent future cavities.
This involves pouring a special dental grade fluoride gel into special trays that are inserted into your mouth along with a gentle suction wand. They will need to be held there for a few minutes to allow the fluoride to permeate the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel.
You will need to avoid eating and drinking for up to an hour to maximize the fluoride saturation in your tooth enamel.
It would also be beneficial to brush your teeth twice each day with a toothpaste with added fluoride. Limiting your consumption of acidic drinks can be very beneficial for maintaining strong tooth enamel.
