People who struggle to maintain a consistent oral hygiene regimen or those who consume acidic beverages on a frequent basis are at increased risk of suffering tooth enamel demineralization. This is even more likely to become an issue if you live in a rural location without daily access to fluoridated water.
If tooth enamel erosion goes unchecked, it could significantly increase your chances of suffering from cavities and tooth sensitivity symptoms.
Fortunately, exposing your teeth to fluoride can help to remineralize your tooth enamel to strengthen your teeth.
Should your routine dental checkup at Oak Grove Dental’s dental offices reveal a problem with the strength of your tooth enamel, Dr. Eric Eidbo might provide you with a prescription for basic fluoride supplements.
This might come in the form of a concentrated fluoride toothpaste or a specially formulated fluoride mouth rinse. The supplement can be applied to your teeth just before you go to bed to allow the fluoride to deeply saturate the microscopic pores in the tooth enamel.
Going forward it might also help to try to cut back on acidic beverages and make sure you are brushing your teeth twice each day with fluoridated toothpaste.
If you live in the Concord, California, area and you are concerned about the strength of tooth enamel and the health of your teeth, you should call 925-685-2286 to schedule a dental checkup at Oak Grove Dental’s dental offices.
