WHAT ARE FLUORIDE TRAYS?
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral on earth that is water soluble. When used correctly, it can significantly reduce your risk of developing cavities and address sensitivity to both hot and cold foods and beverages.
Unchecked, harmful bacteria in our mouths can cause serious damage to the enamel of teeth. This creation of plaque from these germs leads directly to tooth decay and other oral issues. However, through proper fluoride treatments, we can strengthen dental enamel to protect against further bacterial growth and reduce existing colonies!
While fluoride is often associated with children, fluoride trays available at Gentle Dentistry of Tampa, Florida, are also beneficial for adults!
WHY MIGHT I BENEFIT FROM FLUORIDE TRAYS?
You might be increasing your risks of developing cavities due to the following:
- Certain medications which can cause dry mouth
- Chemotherapy/radiation treatment
- Dry mouth, which causes decreased saliva production
- Poor diet
- Poor oral hygiene
- Sjogren’s Syndrome
- Weak enamel
If you have a history of increased cavities, have developed periodontal disease, or have crown and bridge work, you may benefit greatly from fluoride treatments provided by Drs. Angela Rasmussen and Amanda del Cueto of Tampa, Florida.
