We all know that the keys to keeping our teeth clean and healthy are good home hygiene and regular visits to the dentist’s office. We’re also relatively familiar with the types of foods and drinks that pose a risk to our tooth enamel (think carbonated beverages and sugary snacks). However, did you know that your teeth are under a constant assault from acid-producing bacteria no matter what you eat? At Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS in Edison, NJ, Dr. Steven J. Resnick and Dr. David S. Rosenfeld provide patients with the comprehensive preventive dental care they need to protect their teeth from extensive decay and damage. One of the ways we do this is with remineralization treatments.
Why Choose Remineralization Treatment?
Because our doctors practice conservative, minimally invasive dentistry, we believe that preventing dental cavities whenever possible is vastly preferable to drilling and filling when decay has taken hold. When dental cavities are detected and treated in their earliest stages, it is actually possible to avoid the need for the drill altogether. This is where remineralization comes in.
In the case of a cavity that has not yet caused extensive damage, the enamel of the tooth may be treated using topical applications of fluoride and calcium phosphate solutions. These compounds work to attract minerals to the surface of your enamel, hardening it and protecting it against acid wear. Our doctors will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the remineralization process, as well as provide you with information on additional preventive measures that may apply to your unique case.
