You rarely hear the word “toothpaste” without it being preceded by “fluoride.” Fluoride toothpaste is good for teeth, and at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD we encourage its use.
Fluoride is an essential mineral that helps your teeth stay strong. It is found in some foods and water and makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities. Fluoride helps teeth by making them stronger and more resistant to the harmful acid that is formed by bacteria.
If you wonder if you or your child is getting enough fluoride, talk to us about fluoride supplements. We will let you know if they are required and determine the precise supplement dosage.
At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD we are committed to maintaining the dental health of each of our valued patients. Patients from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
