While the best way to receive fluoride is with our professional treatment, there are other ways you can help protect you and your family’s teeth. Most tap water contains fluoride, so try switching to it instead of bottled water or other beverages. This is a great way to help strengthen and remineralize your enamel, possibly even reversing smaller cavities before they can fully develop.

These steps combined with regular visits to our office will help keep you and your family’s smiles as healthy as possible.
