Are you aware that fluoride is added to many water supplies to protect your teeth? However, for some people, the fluoride in their local water supply may still not be enough.

Fluoride naturally occurs in mineral form in many places and is generally safe in small doses. However, be careful when it comes to young children, talk with your dentist before using products containing fluoride, or starting fluoride treatments.

Fluoride can be found in many brands of toothpaste, and mouthwash, as wells as pills and supplements, and treatments by your dentist. Fluoride is important for your oral health because it strengthens tooth enamel to protect against tooth decay.

To learn more about fluoride treatments, contact Dr. Wallace Lunden and our team at Cedar Point Dentistry by calling us at 612-866-7000. If you would like an exam and professional cleaning, our office is located in Richfield, Minnesota. We will help you in any way we can!
