Dental caries is another term used to describe a small cavity. They can occur when an acidic environment in your mouth starts to demineralize an area of tooth enamel. Fortunately, exposing your teeth to trace amounts of fluoride can help to restore some of the mineral strength of your tooth enamel to reduce your chances of suffering from dental caries.

To aid in this effort many municipalities include mild concentrations of fluoride in drinking water. This helps people in the community

If you live in a rural location, then the chances are high that you don’t have ready access to fluoridated water. This can increase your chances of suffering tooth decay on one or more teeth.

Fortunately, you can reduce your chances of suffering dental caries and tooth decay complications by having a dentist like Dr. Stacey Eby administer a simple fluoride treatment. This can often be done at the end of your routine dental checkup at his Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin clinic.

If he feels it’s warranted Dr. Stacey Eby might also provide you with a prescription for fluoride supplements. This can help maintain the health of your teeth in between your routine dental checkups at Eby Family Dental

Concentrated fluoride toothpaste or mouthwash tend to be popular fluoride supplements. If possible, you want to administer the fluoride supplements to your teeth right before bed or at a time when you can abstain from eating or drinking anything for at least an hour.

If you live in the Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, area and you don’t have ready access to fluoridated water, you should call 920-563-2928 to schedule a dental checkup at Eby Family Dental.
