Strong tooth enamel is essential for maintaining healthy teeth. If you sometimes fail to brush your teeth twice a day or you frequently forget to floss, plaque and other bacterial deposits can lead to a buildup of oral plaque acids.
If you also enjoy acidic beverages, these factors can start to compromise the mineral strength of your tooth enamel. As tooth enamel erosion continues to develop, it can significantly increase your chances of suffering from cavities, tooth sensitivity and dental fractures.
If your routine dental checkup with our dentist reveals signs of tooth enamel erosion, Dr. Jacob Shrayman might recommend a treatment plan that includes a fluoride treatment. In just a few minutes, the concentrated fluoride can to quickly bolster the mineral density of your tooth enamel.
If your teeth show significant signs of tooth enamel erosion, he might also provide you with a prescription for fluoride supplements. With consistent use, they can help you maintain strong tooth enamel in between your regularly scheduled dental checkups.
Increased focus in your oral hygiene routine will further help you maintain strong teeth. It’s important to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste as well as making a conscious effort to thoroughly floss every day.
