What Fluoride Can Do for You

Fluoride is a miracle mineral that can help ward off tooth decay and strengthen your bones. Stronger bones and teeth help you talk, chew, and smile with confidence and ease. While fluoride can be found in tap water and toothpaste, there’s another way to get a boost of fluoride for your smile: the dentist’s office! Read on to learn more about fluoride and the fluoride treatments we offer at Queensboro Plaza Dental Care.

What Is Fluoride, & How Does It Work?

Fluoride is an iodized version of the mineral fluorine. It’s found naturally in water, rocks, soil, and air — pretty much everything that makes up the earth. Fluoride is proven to help strengthen bones and teeth. It mineralizes, or hardens, the enamel of the teeth. Plus, it also wards off bacteria from the surface of the teeth, helping to prevent decay. This is why you see fluoride as a common ingredient in toothpaste, and also why many cities in the U.S. fluoridate their tap water supplies.

Fluoride Treatments

At Queensboro Plaza Dental Care, we offer fluoride treatments to help give your teeth an additional layer of fluoride protection after a routine cleaning. The process is very simple and fast. In fact, it only takes about a minute! During a fluoride treatment, we apply a fluoride solution to your teeth which bonds to your teeth instantly. In fact, you’re free to eat and drink right after receiving a fluoride treatment! No fancy tools or pain needed to get stronger, healthier teeth!

Other Ways to Prevent Tooth Decay

Apart from fluoride treatments, you can protect your teeth by brushing twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste and flossing daily. Other good habits include eating a healthy, balanced diet high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein, and visiting your dentist twice a year for cleanings and examinations. These are all excellent ways to prevent tooth decay and maintain a healthy smile.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
