Q: What is fluoride?
A: Fluoride is a mineral that is found in many natural resources. It is beneficial because it dives into the tooth enamel and strengthens it, making it a tough shell that helps you prevent dental problems, like tooth decay and enamel erosion.

Q: How often should I use fluoride?
A: It’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride each day. This can help you have a strong smile. However, fluoride exposure is not recommended for those who are under the age of 3.

Q: How can I access fluoride?
A: You can expose your smile to fluoride by using fluoride toothpaste, using fluoride mouthwash, receiving a professional fluoride treatment when you come to our office, and drinking fluoridated water from the tap regularly.
