On a cool, high-desert day there are few things better than curling up in a warm blanket. Just like we add an extra layer of warmth to protect our bodies, our teeth also benefit from an added layer of protection. Fluoride acts as an extra layer making your teeth stronger and helps protect against decay. It is naturally a part of your bones and teeth but it is important that your teeth have enough fluoride throughout your life. This is especially important to individuals who live in Bend where fluoride is not added to our water systems.
One way to get extra fluoride in your system is to drink water that has it in it. Currently, Bend does not add fluoride to our water system, however, most water bottle companies do add fluoride to their products. If you are concerned about the level of fluoride your teeth have, schedule an appointment and talk to a member of our helpful team.
