Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen enamel, the outer layer of a tooth. Strengthening the enamel makes it stronger and more resistant to decay. Fluoride is also used to reduce sensitivity in teeth caused by recession, grinding, and other dental conditions. Although fluoride has been readily available in over-the-counter toothpastes and even in city water in some areas, it may not be at a high enough percentage where professional strength application is not needed. In some cases, a prescription for a stronger fluoride toothpaste is given for use at home between regular check ups.

Patients with developing teeth or who are at higher risk for developing tooth decay and dental cavities should ask their dentist about professional fluoride treatments during their regular exam and cleaning. Your dentist can help you determine if a professional fluoride treatment is right for you and if further precautions, like prescription home fluoride treatments, will improve your dental health.
