You deserve a strong and healthy smile. Unfortunately, there are many things can threaten your teeth and alter your oral health, causing a damaged and harmed smile. However, if you do what needs to be done on a regular basis, there is a chance you can attain the strong and healthy smile you deserve. The best way to strengthen your teeth and fend off these dental issues, like tooth decay and enamel erosion, is by exposing your teeth to fluoride.

To help you strengthen your teeth with fluoride in Plano, Texas, Dr. Afshin Azmoodeh and our dental team have some tips and recommendations for you.

First, ask for a fluoride treatment at Legacy Trails Dental. For your benefit, Dr. Afshin Azmoodeh and our dental team offer a professional fluoride treatment each time you come into our office for a professional teeth cleaning and exam. This treatment generally comes in the form of a foam, gel or varnish and it is most likely flavored.

Second, use fluoride oral hygiene products. It’s best to brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. Also, rinse your mouth once a day with fluoride mouthwash. If you do so, your smile will be thoroughly cleaned and supported.

Third, use natural fluoride sources. You can find fluoride in specific bottles of water and in your tap water. Usually, cities provide fluoridated water for your health and convenience. Lastly, there are some foods you can eat that can help you increase your fluoride exposure. Those foods are pickles, carrots, spinach and tomatoes. For additional tips about fluoridated food, please talk to Dr. Afshin Azmoodeh.

Our dental team will be happy to help you by providing the tips and well as the treatment needed to give you the strong and healthy smile you’re looking for!
