Fluoride in Rexburg, Idaho, is a beneficial mineral that is in many natural resources. It can nourish and strengthen your smile as well as give it the ability to fight off tooth decay and other major dental issues.

It’s important to receive the proper amount of fluoride each day, and our North Fork Dental Care team is happy to help you do so. We recommend doing the following things:

Take advantage of fluoride dental treatment: Our dental team offers a professional fluoride treatment each time you come in for a dental cleaning and exam. This treatment generally comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it gives your smile the strength it needs to survive.

Use fluoride toothpaste: If you brush your teeth every morning and every night with fluoride toothpaste, your smile will receive fluoride on a daily basis.

Drink fluoridated water: Fortunately, tap water has plenty of fluoride in it. So, the more tap water you drink, the better. You can also find fluoridated water in specific water bottles.

Use fluoride mouthwash: It’s best to rinse your mouth at least once a day with fluoride mouthwash. Doing so will strengthen your teeth and deeply clean your smile.

Eat foods that contain fluoride: There are some foods you can consume that will help you increase your fluoride intake each day. Those foods are pickles, spinach, tomatoes, and carrots. For additional food tips, please talk to your dentist.
