FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in our bones and teeth. You can also find it in the environment like in water, plants, rocks, and soil. At the dentist, we use fluoride to help with:
- Rebuilding weakened tooth enamel
- Slowing the loss of minerals from the enamel on your teeth
- Reverse early indications of tooth decay
- Prevent harmful bacteria from growing in your mouth
Regular visits to the dentist are really important to keep your gums and teeth healthy. You should visit your dentist at least every 6 months for check-ups and cleanings.
To prevent cavities, you need to remove harmful bacteria from your teeth. Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day is the best way to keep your teeth clean every day. Brushing and flossing also helps to stimulate your gums, keeping them healthy. That helps prevent gum disease.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends you brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste for 2 minutes each time. They also recommend you clean between teeth by flossing at least one time per day.
