Prevident

Merion Village Dentistry uses Prevident to help our patients fight chronic tooth decay, or to strengthen tooth enamel.

Prevident is a prescription-strength fluoridated toothpaste that is used once a day (preferably before bed) to help restore essential vitamins into the surface of weak, cavity prone teeth.

Prevident is more effective than over the counter fluoride toothpastes in preventing tooth sensitivity. Using Prevident allows patients to:

  • Reverse areas with beginning stages of tooth decay
  • Prevent white spots from developing around braces
  • Combat sensitivity in weakened teeth
  • Strengthen enamel throughout the mouth
  • Extend the lifetime of restorations

At Merion Village Dental, we use Prevident during preventative care appointments to strengthen the weakened enamel of sensitive teeth. In some cases, we may prescribe an at-home dosage of flavored gel for continued use by our patients.

How should Prevident be used at home?

Prevident should be used to compliment a normal routine of brushing and flossing. After your evening oral hygiene routine, apply a small, pea-sized amount of Prevident to your toothbrush and brush thoroughly. Do not rinse your mouth, but expectorate well to remove most of the gel. Do not eat or drink anything before going to bed, allowing the minerals to stay on the surface of your teeth as long as possible.

At Merion Village Dental, we help you stop decay right in its tracks

Why let weak, sensitive teeth wreck your oral health? Prevident is a safe and effective way for older children, teens, and adults to protect the long-term health of their teeth. Chat online with a member of our team to schedule an appointment!
