Fluoride Trays

What are fluoride trays?

Fluoride is a water soluble, naturally occurring mineral. Fluoride can reduce your risk of tooth decay, as well as decrease sensitivity to hot and cold, or even to sugar. 

Harmful bacteria is continuously accumulating in the oral cavity. You develop tooth decay when bacteria builds up on your teeth and gums, which forms a sticky layer of plaque. Fluoride can help to strengthen the enamel on your teeth in order to resist the attacks on your teeth by the bacteria. Additionally, a patient undergoing fluoride treatment reduces the ability of the bacteria in their mouth to continue to grow. 

Fluoride is beneficial to both children and adults.

Why do I need to use fluoride trays?

You increase your risk of developing tooth decay due to:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Poor diet
  • Dry mouth/decreased saliva production
  • Weak enamel
  • Chemotherapy/radiation treatment
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Certain medications which can cause dry mouth

If you have a history of at least one cavity a year, or if you have gum disease, or if you presently have crown and bridge work, fluoride is very beneficial for your oral health.

Although extremely professional and skilled, the staff manages to create a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. They also take the time to do things properly, and do a good job of conveying that they care.
