Fluoride treatments are one of the preventive dental services offered by Dr. Murray, your caring dentist in Cupertino, California. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps to prevent tooth decay by remineralizing the enamel layer of the tooth. Fluoride helps to make the teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque, bacteria, and sugars. While fluoride is naturally found in water and many foods, we offer fluoride treatments to supplement your fluoride intake and help to prevent tooth decay. Professional fluoride treatments are available in the form of gels, foams, and varnishes. Fluoride is also found in toothpaste, mouthwash, and other products; if you would like to learn more about other sources of fluoride, please feel free to ask our knowledgeable dentist and dental team. For more information on our fluoride treatments and how fluoride can help to prevent dental problems, we welcome you to call or visit us at Murray Dental Care today!
