Oral Health and Fluoride

We’ve all heard the success story of fluoride, perhaps the most dramatic turnaround of a population’s dental health in history. But we’re finding the benefits of fluoride extend beyond decay prevention in our children. There’s something in fluoride for adults, too.
As we get a little older, the gums tend to recede, exposing the tooth root. Since the root surface is dentin, rather than tough, protective enamel, the root becomes more susceptible to decay. Dentin is closer to nerves, too, so teeth can be sensitive to heat and cold.
Fluorides can help with your dental hygiene program. The numbers in a recent University of Iowa survey are impressive. At the end of a year-long study, adults aged 54 to 93 enjoyed 67% less decay on the root surfaces (and 41% less on tooth crowns) than non-fluoride users. We’ve seen the same kinds of success when it comes to gum problems with fluoride, there is less plaque, less tartar, and less bacteria all around to multiply into gum disease.
Gel-Kam
Many patients know Gel-Kam well.
Gel-Kam is a prescription stannous fluoride, much more effective than other fluoride compounds on the market.
Just after you visit your dental hygienist to have your teeth cleaned is a good time to introduce you to Gel-Kam. Right away it restores the fluoride lost during dental cleaning. At home, you apply Gel-Kam once daily, after your regular preventive dentistry regimen.
We’re seeing good results with Gel-Kam. It’s easy to use and it’s safe – a low fluoride concentration that still works.
Your dentist is likely to recommend a home fluoride program if you’re having recurrent caries, difficulty in keeping free of plaque and calculus, or gum recession.
