Fluoride Applications in Dearborn Heights

A naturally-occurring mineral, fluoride has been proven to be very effective in preventing tooth decay and strengthening tooth enamel. Topical fluoride applications can greatly benefit individuals who are at a high risk of experiencing tooth decay.

There are two benefits that fluoride provides for teeth:

  • Fluoride attaches to tooth enamel to enhance strength and resistance
  • Fluoride restores and remineralizes tooth enamel, reversing the effects of very early tooth decay

Cambridge Dental Group offers patients topical fluoride applications to strengthen their teeth and reduce their likelihood of tooth decay. The application consists of a very simple procedure, and it can be conducted in just one visit to our practice.

Fluoride is applied directly to the teeth in the form of a foam, gel or varnish or by using a tray that is worn over the teeth. After the teeth have been treated, the patient may be required to refrain from eating or drinking anything for at least an hour. This is so that the teeth are able to fully absorb the fluoride.

Patients receive topical fluoride applications for many reasons, including:

  • Root surfaces that are exposed or overly-sensitive
  • The presence of deep grooves or fissures on the molars
  • A poor practice of oral hygiene
  • Limited exposure to natural fluoride
  • High levels of sugar consumption
  • A prior history of tooth decay
  • A lack of proper saliva flow

Although fluoride can prevent cavities, it is also critical that the patient remembers to practice good oral hygiene habits by brushing and flossing regularly and receiving professional teeth cleanings at least twice per year.

I can't say anything but good things about this place. My husband told me I was going to like it here & I honestly didn't want to believe him. But they're so friendly & nice, & they make sure your comfortable at all times. If the dentist is taking a while the assistants will come just to check in on you. I only gave 4 stars because I've only been here 3 time, twice was for me. Other than that Cambridge is awesome overall!

Well to my surprise the staff and Danielle were wonderful in calming my fears, and Dr. Mustafa was amazing causing me no pain! Needless to say i went on for the next 4 months having all my dental problems corrected! I will never be afraid again !! Thank you, thank you!
