Did you know it’s important to expose your teeth to fluoride each day? Well, it’s true. This is the case because fluoride will help you fight dental issues, like tooth decay and enamel erosion, so you can have the strongest and healthiest smile possible. So, Dr. Philippe Athuil and our dental team would like to help you increase your fluoride exposure by telling you how you can gain access to the beneficial mineral.

First, ask for a fluoride treatment at Philippe Athuil, DDS. For your benefit, Dr. Philippe Athuil 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. If you brush your teeth every morning and every night with fluoride toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association, your smile will be exposed to fluoride on a regular basis. Also, it’s best to rinse your mouth daily with fluoride mouth rinse. If you do this, your smile will be thoroughly cleaned and your chompers will be nourished.

Third, use natural fluoride sources. Fortunately, each city provides fluoridated water in their water system, so if you drink enough tap water, you can strengthen and nourish your smile. Lastly, there are some foods that you can consume to help boost your fluoride exposure, like spinach, beets, asparagus, carrots and tomatoes.
