Fluoride Treatment from Novi Family Dentistry

Day in and Day out our teeth lose fluoride through regular demineralization of our teeth from acids caused by plaque and bacteria from sugars which attack our tooth enamel.

Since you cannot technically ‘put back’ fluoride into your teeth, you can however change your diet and eating habits while maintaining fluoride treatments thru your Novi, MI dentist.

Want to defend your teeth against acid attacks caused by plaque bacteria and sugars in your mouth?
Make sure you schedule with your local Novi, MI dentist for a fluoride treatment today!

Here are some examples of increased tooth decay conditions that you can conquer with additional fluoride treatments:

What is the Process for Fluoride Treatment?

Fluoride is most effective when in direct contact with the enamel. So the best way to reverse the effects of acid erosion is through fluoride therapy applied directly to your teeth. Topical fluoride comes in the form of toothpaste and mouthwash; however, you can choose to take this treatment one step further. Dr. Faraj of Novi Family Dentistry offers professional fluoride treatment in the form of a topical varnish. During this simple procedure our dentist applies a temporarily adhesive form of fluoride to the surface of your teeth. The fluoride remains in contact with the enamel for several hours after your appointment and helps remineralize the surface of your teeth. You should not eat, drink, brush or smoke for at least 30 minutes after treatment and be sure to follow all other instructions from Dr. Faraj.

Make sure to check with your local Novi, MI dentist to discuss fluoride treatments best suited for you!
