What is fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally sourced mineral, commonly found in the air, rocks, water, and soil; it can even be found in your bones and teeth. Fluoride treatment enables the body to absorb minerals, like calcium and phosphate, to promote strengthening the tooth enamel.
Professional fluoride treatments are used to strengthen the enamel on the surface of your teeth, also fighting harmful bacteria in the mouth. Your South Berwick, and serving Eliot, ME, dentist, Dr. Orendorf encourages the extension of family dentistry in your home by using toothpaste or mouth rinses that include fluoride.
Are there any benefits of fluoride treatments?

- Fights against, and can even reverse signs of tooth decay
