Do You Need Fluoride?

If you have no fluoride in your drinking water, drink filtered or bottled water, or floss less than once per day, you could benefit from topically applied fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral that is found naturally in many things we eat or drink. It is nature’s way of helping prevent cavities. The application of professional strength fluoride plays an important role in helping keep your teeth for life. In the lifelong fight against cavities, both adults and children benefit from in-office treatment.

At Martha Anne Carr, DDS, we are concerned about helping you to optimize your oral health, and are here to meet your dental care needs. If you have any questions about dental hygiene (i.e. brushing and flossing technique, use of fluoride, etc…) please contact us.
