Fluoride Treatment in Glace Bay

At Bayside Dental in Glace Bay, Cape Breton, our family dentists provide fluoride treatment to help make the teeth resistant to decay.

What is fluoride treatment?

Acid from plaque, bacteria, and sugars in the mouth can cause tooth decay as it wears away at the dental enamel, the hard outer surface of the teeth.

Fluoride is a mineral with similar benefits to those of calcium. It is an integral part of the tooth’s enamel and protects teeth from decay. 

Fluoride treatment is the method of replenishing the fluoride concentration of your teeth to protect them from tooth decay.

The body loses fluoride every day and needs to increase intake to ensure that there is an appropriate balance.
