If you had to pick the hardest and toughest substance in the human body would your first guess be your tooth enamel? Well, the truth is that it is the strongest part of your body and its strength is comparable to steel! Chances are, however, that there are acids in the things you eat and drink and the bacteria in the plaque on your teeth can interact with sugar to manufacture acid as well. Over time, these acids can wear down your enamel and put your teeth at risk for decay or infection. At The Smile Team, our dentist, Dr. Abid Hidayat and our team provide fluoride treatments in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, to help keep your enamel safe. If you would like to find out if you or someone in your family could benefit from one of these treatments, call to schedule an appointment.
