If you would like extra protection against tooth decay for your teeth or your child’s teeth, ask Dr. Priti Dagli about dental fluoride in Plainsboro, New Jersey.

What Is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help strengthen the teeth against decay. Every day, minerals are lost and gained from the tooth enamel. Demineralization is when the minerals are lost and remineralization is when they are gained back. Fluoride can help speed remineralization to the teeth.

How Does It Work?
Fluoride can aid the teeth in two different ways. Dental fluoride can strengthen growing baby teeth and permanent teeth before they break through the gums. In addition, fluoride can strengthen and harden the enamel of permanent teeth that have already grown in.

How Is Fluoride Applied at Plainsboro Dental Services?
Dental fluoride can be applied to your teeth at our office. With professional fluoride treatments, the fluoride concentration is much stronger than fluoride gained from other sources. The fluoride can be applied as a gel, varnish, or foam. In some cases, Dr. Priti Dagli may also prescribe fluoride supplements to those who do not have sufficient fluoride in their water.

We encourage you to contact our office at 609-716-7100 today to learn more and to schedule a visit with our dentist.
