Drs. Ritter and Ramsey are both advocates of the use of fluoride during regular cleaning visits. Below are some facts about the reasoning why we stand behind our decision.• Fluoride is NOT A MEDICATION! It is a mineral, and when present at the right level it helps prevent tooth decay, and contributes to healthy bones. • Fluoride occurs naturally in water, though rarely at the optimal level to protect teeth. • Many everyday products are fortified to enhance the health of Americans- iodine is added to salt, folic acid is added to breads and cereals, Vitamin D is added to milk, and Fluoride is added to water. • Topical fluoride helps re-mineralize enamel layers making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth that cause decay. • Fluoride helps to reverse early decay. • People with dry mouth, orthodontics, crowns and bridges, Sjogren’s Syndrome, a history of head and neck radiation, gum disease and recession are all at increased risk for decay and can benefit from fluoride treatments. • Getting enough fluoride in childhood is critical to strengthening our teeth for an entire lifetime. • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reviewed whether using toothpaste with fluoride alone was enough. After looking at all the ways we might get fluoride- including fluoride toothpaste-the CDC recommended that communities fluoridate water at 0.7 parts per million. Any less puts the health of our teeth at risk. SEE ATTACHED MAP OF FLORIDA CITIES LESS THAN 0.7 PPM IN THEIR WATER • Tooth decay is the most common chronic health problem affecting children in the U.S. It is 5 times more common than asthma! • Drinking fluoridated water prevents decay by as much as 27% in adults. Topical fluoride can be applied for prevention as well. • Anti-fluoride activists have claimed, with no evidence, that fluoridation causes everything from Cancer to mental disease.
This past weekend, Dr. Rob Ritter was in Des Moines, Iowa taking hands on course with Dr. Newton Fahl on direct composites. Direct composites are the plastic filling material that dentists place on front teeth and the white filing material that is placed on back teeth. Dr. Fahl is universally viewed its the best composite dentist on the planet! He practices in Curitiba, Brazil. He was in Des Moines to give a special 3 day course to a select few dentists. The skills and knowledge that were accumulated will be put to good use on our patients.
