The overall strength of your tooth enamel plays an important role in maintaining the overall health of your teeth. The mineral density of your teeth helps them to resist bacterial cavities and tooth sensitivity problems.
Your routine dental exam with Dr. Marlayna Best is designed to clean your teeth and examine your mouth for any signs of tooth decay gum disease, and oral cancer. This also includes monitoring the strength of your tooth enamel.
If Dr. Marlayna Best has any concerns about the mineral strength of your tooth enamel. she might recommend adding a simple fluoride treatment to the end of your dental check up.
Dr. Marlayna Best will administer the treatment by pouring a small amount of concentrated fluoride gel into special mouth shaped trays. They will be inserted in your mouth with a suction wand to catch any excess saliva or stay fluoride. You should avoid eating or drinking for half an hour after the treatment. This will allow the fluoride to fully saturate the microscopic textures of your tooth enamel.
