Fluoride Treatments in Simi Valley
There are many circumstances that indicate the use of extra fluoride protection among adults.
For example, taking prescription medications that reduce saliva and cause dry mouth syndrome is one reason that indicates the use of fluoride.
Additionally, adults often experience gingival recession which exposes part of the roots of the teeth, a surface that is softer than tooth enamel and, therefore, more susceptible to decay. In this kind of situations, a fluoride treatment can also help both strengthen your teeth and prevent gum recession.
Moreover, adults often go through restorative treatments such as dental bridges and crowns. In this case, fluoride helps protect the margins of restorations, also protecting the investment in these treatments.
Orthodontics is also a popular treatment among adults today. Aesthetic or traditional braces complicate the maintenance of good oral hygiene. In these situations, fluoride is the best way to keep your teeth healthy and decay-free despite the obstacles caused by brackets.
If you have suffered from tooth decay during the last year, you are at a higher risk of suffering from other infections. Fluoride treatments are a good way to prevent new infections in patients with a history of these types of problems.
If your oral hygiene habits are not ideal, fluoride may be what you need to avoid interdental cavities. On the other hand, fluoride can also help you with a problem that becomes more evident with age: tooth sensitivity. Fluoride remineralizes the enamel and reduces the sensitivity of the teeth, improving your well-being.
