Fluoride is an essential nutrient in the development of teeth. Adequate levels of fluoride absorbed in tap water, foods sources and supplements create strong, healthy tooth enamel. Once teeth erupt from the gums, topical fluoride is required to fortify and protect tooth enamel. Daily brushing and flossing with fluoridated toothpaste is essential to preserving healthy tooth structures. For those patients who need a little extra help, professional fluoride treatments are available during any six-month checkup at Indian Creek Dental.
