Fluoride Treatment in Stockton CA

Fluoride, a mineral found in most food and water, has long been recognized as an ally in the fight against decay. Topical fluoride can help us to prevent cavities and the build-up of calculus (tartar) and plaque as well as strengthen the teeth. Topical fluoride is often found in:

  • Mouthwash
  • In-office dental treatments
  • Toothpaste

Some studies suggest that fluoride is not only helpful in preventing tooth decay before it starts, but fluoride can also help reverse some tooth decay already on the teeth. If you or your child is not receiving enough fluoride, Dr. Nguyen may recommend a fluoride supplement for protection against decay.
