Did You Know That Shark Teeth Are Naturally Fluoridated?

You’d think with all those seals, fish and the occasional surf board, sharks’ teeth would be a mass of cavities and bad dental hygiene. Not the case. Sharks may have the healthiest teeth in the animal kingdom, it turns out. Scientists just found that their pearly whites contain fluoride, the active ingredient in most tooth pastes and mouthwashes.

Fluoride treatments in our dental office add extra protection for your teeth. Without good daily oral hygiene and regular dental visits, teeth become more vulnerable to caries (decay). Fluoride treatments are not just for children, they are for all patients of all ages! Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent caries and can repair teeth in the very early, micrscopic stages of the disease

Our office provides Fluoride Varnish, which is a better way to receive this treatment, as it is adherent to nature as it is more capable to stay in contact with the tooth for several hours. Ask one of our highly trained team of hygienists how we can help protect your teeth and have a health smile for life! source
