Fluoride Treatment Seattle, WA

Bright smile thanks to fluoride treatmentsFluoride is one of those dental terms that you have probably heard about since childhood. It is discussed in every toothpaste commercial, and asked about at every dental cleaning. But, why is it so important?

How does fluoride help my teeth?


Fluoride helps the enamel of our teeth to be strong. Enamel is the hard white layer on the outside of our teeth. Enamel is what gives our teeth the strength they need for the chewing and biting of our food. Our dentists at Crown Hill Dental Care want your teeth to be strong and healthy, giving you the confidence you want.

We all put our teeth through a lot of work. The constant gnashing and gnawing of foods containing acid (from foods like oranges, tomatoes, etc,) and sugar (found in most foods) cause a process called demineralization to occur to our teeth. Meaning, the hard enamel begins to lose the minerals it needs for strength. Doctors have found that by applying fluoride, we are applying the necessary minerals to remineralize that enamel. This means that through fluoride you are able to build up the strength of your teeth. This added strength helps protect your teeth from decay and future attacks from those acidic and sugary foods.

What is a fluoride treatment?


When coming for a routine dental exam, one of our dentists, Dr. Drumhiller, Dr. Walker, or Dr. Goll, will ask you if you would like to have a fluoride treatment. This is a strong dose of fluoride, stronger than you can receive over the counter. Under a doctors care, we are able to apply the correct dosage necessary for the patient.
