Take Steps To Avoid Flu Transmission

flu prevention | Dekamore DentalDon’t want to give your flu to anyone else? The DeKalb dentists at Dekamore Dental want to help keep you healthy throughout the flu season.

Here are ways to protect those around you from getting the flu.  Read more in an article by the Center For Disease Control (CDC)

  1. Start with prevention.  Get the flu vaccine to prevent the flu or lessen the effects of the flu.
  2. Avoid close contact with others when you have the flu.
  3. Disinfect surfaces touched by a person with the flu.
  4. Stay at home if you have a fever.
  5. Wash your hands frequently, especially after you cough into your hand, sneeze or blow your nose.   If washing is not practical, use alcohol based hand sanitizers.
  6. Covering your nose with a facial tissue when you sneeze or cough is the best way to prevent transmission.  Throw the used tissue away in the garbage immediately.

Why do adults need fluoride treatments?

Dekamore Dental | DeKalb ILA fluoride treatment can make a positive change in your dental health at any age.

Fluoride has the ability to physically bond to your tooth structure making your tooth stronger and more resistant to decay (cavities).

As you age, your gums may recede exposing the cementum which covers the root surfaces of your teeth.  This part of your tooth can be sensitive to hot and cold and is softer than enamel making it more susceptible to decay.  The fluoride treatment can decrease tooth sensitivity and will fortify the tooth to make it more resistant to root decay.

If you are prone to cavities, the DeKalb dentists at Dekamore Dental recommend getting a fluoride treatment that will help prevent more decay.  If you are caries free, the fluoride treatment will help keep your teeth that way.

Unfortunately, a fluoride treatment is not a substitute for brushing and flossing at home!  So, keep up the good work!
