Fluoride Treatments Princeton, NJ

Just as children require active attention to their oral health as their teeth develop and erupt, adults require active attention to their oral health to ensure that their teeth last for a lifetime. Every day, your body takes in fluoride and loses fluoride. Fluoride is a natural compound found in the element fluorine, and it is found in foods and treated water that you consume. As your teeth are attacked by oral bacteria each day, your teeth lose fluoride through demineralization. Those with a healthy diet and who take an active role in their oral health often find that they can “put fluoride back” into their teeth in order to keep their smile healthy. However, for those who lose fluoride faster than they take it in, they are vulnerable to tooth decay.

Fluoride has long been known for adding a barrier of protection to the enamel of the teeth in order to prevent cavities and decay. Fluoride treatments are quick, painless applications of a strong concentration of fluoride that defend the teeth against acid-producing bacteria. Fluoride treatments are regularly used on children’s teeth because they are “softer” and often more susceptible to developing caries. However, adults can benefit from fluoride treatments, too, for fighting tooth decay and strengthening the tooth enamel.

Certain conditions and parameters put adults at an increased risk of tooth decay:

  • Main drinking water source is well water
  • Poor diet
  • Poor oral health
  • Irregular dental visits
  • Active orthodontic treatment
  • Gum recession
  • Dry mouth
  • Eating disorder
  • Acid reflux
  • Alcohol or drug use (including tobacco use)
  • The use of certain medications
  • Undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy

Prime Dental Care encourages you to take an active role in your oral health and your child’s oral health. Fluoride treatments are an effective and easy way to protect the teeth against cavities and decay. We proudly offer this extra “layer” of protection that will benefit your teeth now and for the future. Contact our practice for an appointment and to learn more.

Ms P.

My husband has been going to Dr Ma and this practice for many years and swears by them so I thought I would try it out. Very pleasant and professional with a great location and good availability, they respond to queries in a timely way and provide reminders for appointments via text which is great since some practices appear to be in the dark ages on some of the practical stuff. Everyone seems to try to ensure you have a pleasant visit (in spite of being to the dentist!) so kudos to the whole operation. Also, a lot of care has been taken to go above and beyond the requirements of hygiene during this pandemic including state-of-the-art air filtration systems.

Jay J.

Starting from reception to the assistant to the doctors they are so amazing. I have major dental anxiety and they were above and beyond sweet and nice to me. I have come back after a root canal and I can go for a run I feel that good and comfortable with them. They rock! They are awesome- I highly recommend this place

Xiao L.

I’m experiencing a very painful toothache during the COVID-19 period. Thanks for Dr. Ma’s quick response using the “teledentistry”, I got a timely and precise diagnosis without having to step out of my house. I really appreciated their help at this moment!
